This website is a voice for victims of unfair ‘Public Rights of Way’ disputes! Scroll down to read 70+ Posts

I am a 72 year old pensioner and I am the victim of a Public Right of Way claim through my garden. Along with other friends who also suffer from this blight on their lives, we hope to help ourselves and others who find themselves alone in an unjust, unfair and archaic system. It will take us a while to get to grips with making a relevant and interesting web site but we are an enthusiastic bunch with much expertise…

A Remote video hearing is Totally unacceptable!

A Remote video hearing is Totally unacceptable!

Aside from the fact that these so called PROW inquiries Should be in a Court of Law not a village hall, they certainly should not be relegated to a ‘do it yourself’ Zoom meeting! Each time I consider any aspect of the PROW system I think that this pseudo judicial set up cannot possibly get any worse. I am continually proved wrong. If Norfolk County Council want Public Rights over anyones home or property then they should have to prove…

ANN’S MYROW DIARY W/C 21st JUNE 2020 Eleven Months Later!

Let’s not elaborate on this because in Public Rights of Way there are only three speeds SLOW, VERY SLOW AND STOP! Ok so we finally got the Order…….zzzzzzz Meanwhile we’ve played damage limitations and built a beautiful new house! Now please don’t get the idea we have any intention of giving up our fight for justice and common sense, along with all the other victims of this corrupt and ‘not fit for purpose’ system. We most certainly have not! Norfolk…

The Government have a duty to Get Deregulation Done

The Government have a duty to Get Deregulation Done

Originally footpaths were local and used by people for a purpose. The ‘rules’ now governing these paths are archaic and fail to meet the needs of todays society. Footpaths that used to be for getting to work, visiting a neighbour or going to church are now required for recreation and tourism. The demand is great from ‘extra’ users which now include horse riders,cyclists,4×4’s,motorbikes and walkers who no longer ‘need’ the paths but want them for recreation. The archaic laws allow…

Somerset County Council process 10 modification applications per YEAR. They currently have 375!!!

August 2019 to April 2020 Somerset County Council have had 18 more applications!!! This was the answer received from Somerset County Council in August 2019 “We aim to determine 10 applications per year. However, we have recently taken steps to increase the rate at which applications are determined. Based on the current rate of determination I estimate it will be 20 – 30 years before investigation of application 8**M commences.“ The current indiscriminate RAMBLER initiatives to claim Historic Paths from…

For Patrick ❤️

I saw the article ‘If supermarkets can stay open so can churches’. I sent it to our Vicar who hopes, as I do, that the hierarchy of the Church will soon see sense. Meanwhile he’s got a bottle of gin and I’m tidying out cupboards. I equated the article with Public Rights of Way in that common sense is a little lacking in both. Ie; I can walk on a narrow PROW, touch any manner of gates and tread though…

Ramblers must be unaware of the misery that many of their ill researched ‘lost’ Footpath Claims cause to ‘Ordinary’ Homeowners.

Ramblers must be unaware of the misery that many of their ill researched ‘lost’ Footpath Claims cause to ‘Ordinary’ Homeowners.

In answer to The Ramblers Facebook Page. Unfortunately you choose to either ignore the misery you are causing to any home owners affected by some of your claims or you are unaware of it. I hope it is the latter. Some claims are for routes through people’s private gardens even living rooms! The claim itself remains unresolved for years, can be found ‘eventually’ to be false or incorrect but meanwhile has devalued a property and caused misery to an ordinary…

Government closes public places but man is told he must reopen the Public Footpath through his garden or face Court Action!

Government closes public places but man is told he must reopen the Public Footpath through his garden or face Court Action!

This is the notice which politely asks the public to stay away from one mans Private Garden. Wales has temporarily closed ALL Public Footpaths. The police have powers to enforce government guidelines. Some Councils have issued temporary closure notices. One Parish Council puts up its own notice. Yet the victim of a Public Footpath through his own private garden is threatened with prosecution if he does not remove HIS notice. Where are Private Human Rights?Where is the right for a…
