Milnrow & Newhey Bridleways Group

CLAIM: Wickenhall

Some of the most scenic riding routes in our area can be found around Ogden, our gateway to the Piethorne Valley and access to miles of off-road riding.  Circular routes around Ogden village, Wickenhall and Higher Ogden have been popular riding routes for decades.  However an important part of one of our prettiest routes currently only has footpath status and therefore with the help of user evidence provided by MNBG members and supporters, an application has been submitted to Rochdale Council to upgrade the route to bridleway status.

UPDATE (16 Sep 2019)

The DMMO application to upgrade this roue to a bridleway has not been submitted and ROW officer Julie Simpson is considering the evidence.  So now all we can do is wait.
