Rights of Way – Restoring the Record

Our trustee Phil Wadey, together with his co-author Sarah Bucks, will be presenting two training courses based on their book ‘Rights of Way – Restoring the Record’ at venues in Yorkshire in October 2016 as follows:

The British Horse Society and The Ramblers have joined forces to run ‘Restoring the Record’ training courses across England. The aim of the training events is to enthuse, enable and empower rights of way researchers to make definitive map modification order applications to ensure that routes that would be extinguished in 2026 are saved from the cut off date.

The day will concentrate on identifying routes, the key sources of evidence of historic ways, where that information is located, what it can tell us, and how a systematic research method is the best way forward.

Venue: Buckles Inn, Tadcaster Road, Askham Richard, York YO23 3PW
