Footpaths leaflet
31 May 2020

In 2001 Margaret and the late John Thorpe produced a footpaths map of the parish of Bridekirk.

The original was a paper copy, which is now reproduced here as a downloadable document.

If you are printing these pages, it is recommended that you download the files and print from Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Do not try to print from your web browser, as it may print small images of the pages.

Make sure your printer driver is set to print A4 and Landscape format.

Why not download these pages to your smartphone, so you can carry them with you?

It is interesting to see the photograph of Rook Farm as it was before its redevelopment for housing.
