Rights of Way – Restoring the Record

Following publication of the 2nd edition of their book, Rights of Way – Restoring the Record, our trustee, Phil Wadey, and his colleague Sarah Bucks will resume training on applying the methods in their book in October and November. The book and training aim 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.
