Restoring the Record – Rights of Way Training

Following publication of the 2nd edition of their book, Rights of Way – Restoring the Record, our trustee, Phil Wadey, and his colleague Sarah Bucks have resumed training on how to apply the methods in their book. 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.

The next training day is on Saturday 2 December 2017 at the Marlene Reid Centre, 85 Belvoir Road, Coalville, Leicestershire.

This training day is FREE using national funds from The British Horse Society and the Ramblers, and local funds under the auspices of the Leicestershire Local Access Forum.

It is essential to book a place which you can do here.  This page also gives further details of the day.
