Hartham Common, Hertford: Public Footpath 20
The site: Hartham Common is located between Hertford town centre and the village of Bengeo.
The brief: To create a public footpath crossing the common and to refurbish the existing footbridge.
Our solution: Maydencroft supplied and installed timber kick boards to the bridge, which were made up of pressure treated softwood timbers with a brown pigment. We also supplied and installed a large mobility kissing gate. We then manufactured bespoke metal wings at both ends of the bridge, made from traditional galvanised metal estate fencing. We finally painted all metal work on the bridge, kissing gate and estate fencing with hardwearing black paint.
The result: A usable space was enhanced providing safe and level access across the common which will benefit the local community, as part of the Hertfordshire Rights of Way Improvement Plan.
