Restoring the Record – Rights of Way Training

Our trustee, Phil Wadey, and his colleague Sarah Bucks will resume providing training on applying the methods in their book Rights of Way – Restoring the Record following publication of the 2nd edition in August 2017. 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.

At the moment, no training days are planned until October 2017. Please see here for further details.

Details of training days will be posted here and sent to OSS members when available.
