In 2020, as a result of Covid-19, the owners of Grove farm, Houghton Regis (east of Lords Hill) created an new preferred route for the bridleway through their land. They are progressing this as a formal change. The proposed new route has some advantages in that it takes it away from the inhabited buildings, but it has a steep slope although this does give some impressive views across the valley. The definitive legal route is still formally accessible but the owners would prefer users to use the proposed route.
