One Council publish their ‘Advice‘ to those with a PROW through their gardens. They should be ASHAMED!!!

Some paths pass close to residential properties, and in some cases through gardens, but with sensible precautions there is no reason that this would increase the risk to householders of contracting Coronavirus. Public rights of way provide an opportunity for local people to…

Country Living gets it VERY BADLY WRONG !

Country Living April 2020 – “Rural Issues” “Join the fight for our Footpaths” I was saddened to read your article in Country Living because it was the most ill-informed article it has been my misfortune to read! Relying on unsupported alleged facts is grossly misleading to readers.  In the circumstances and relying on my 30 years’ investigative research experience  re alleged Public Rights of Way it would be helpful if you would take a little time to digest the following, which a…

Evidence is not always what it seems!

Evidence is not always what it seems!

Ordnance Survey 6 inch to 1 mile maps Ordnance Survey Maps are only PHYSICAL evidence of a way. They are NOT PROOF of a Public Right of Way and they all carry a disclaimer. Tithe Maps and Tithe Apportionments Tithe maps were solely concerned with identifying tithable lands and NOT with roads or their status, so CANNOT be used as definitive evidence about PUBLIC roads Enclosure Maps and Awards They are the LEGAL creation of a way as a highway. …

The blame for this confrontational meeting is entirely at the door of Norfolk County Council who certainly DO NOT maintain a soft road through my garden and NEVER have done! NCC Interactive map…
