Rights of Way

Rights of Way
Restoring the Record
Free workshops for rights of way enthusiasts...
Acknowledged experts, Phil Wadey and Sarah Bucks, will be presenting two workshops based on their book “Rights of Way – Restoring the Record”. The aim of these training events is to enthuse, enable and empower rights of way researchers to make definitive map modification order applications to ensure that rights that would be extinguished in 2026 are saved for future generations to use. 
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 can be employed to undertake this work.
