Older members, and by that I mean in terms of membership as opposed to pensionable age, will remember that some time ago we published a footpath map based on an elderly version of the local OS map. Copies were lovingly put together by hand and sold for a fraction of the production cost.
This year we thought you were due for a treat so the committee has purchased a copy of the very latest OS map covering an area of approximately 50 square kilometres centred on the Manor House, and a license to create our own version overlaid with up-to-date information about all the footpaths and bridalways in our area.
It makes a perfect guide to those of you who still have the use of your legs and choose to walk and explore this magnificent area in which we live. It is provided free to members and will be sold for £6 to non-members. (There's a lesson here don't you think?)
John Leonhardt volunteered to collate all the relevant information and present it as a draft and Peter Grainger volunteered to computerise it and create a new document ready for printing. (The term "volunteered" is used loosely.).
The new Little Gaddesden Map of Paths was launched at a party in the Village Hall on Friday 8th February 2008.
It’s finished and available free to members in a lovely clear plastic folder. Additional maps may be purchased at £6 each. If you are not currently a member it is only £2 per annum to join. Please either telephone Lyn Hyde (842267), e-mail email@example.com or deliver £2 and your name and address to a committee member and you’re in.
