Commentary: Short dirt track through woodland, meeting paved bridleway O14.

SZ0895 : Redhill: approaching the end of bridleway O16 by Chris Downer
This looks like a rural bridleway track, but it is very short - only 60m in length.

It links Wimborne Road pavement with similar tarmacked bridleway O14, and is therefore a little rural enclave between two tarmacked paths.

SZ0895 : Redhill: B.O.A.T. O18 from Wimborne Road by Chris Downer
The left-hand of these two driveways is a public right of way, a byway open to all traffic (or B.O.A.T.) which today appears to be a private drive to Redhill Park Homes.

The right of way does not seem to have any apparent function as a through route - however, a look at the historical map shows us that it comes to an end at the original main course of the river (with a ford also marked on the map). The original course of the river is still evident on the modern-day map because the borough boundary still follows that course.
