Extracts from "The Secrets of Countryside Access" published by the Ramblers

Some popular misconceptions regarding footpaths:

A stile indicates the existence of a public footpath.

     Stiles are sometimes erected, other than on public paths, solely for a landowner’s personal convenience.

If a path is not walked for a certain number of years, then it will cease to exist.

     A public path will only cease to exist after it has been officially extinguished.

If a path is not visible on the ground, then it does not exist.

     What does exist is a public right. There does not have to be any physical presence.

A path crosses my land, so I can close it if I want to.

     Virtually all rights of way cross private land, but a farmer or landowner cannot close a path by taking unilateral action.

 And finally All ramblers must wear bobble hats!

     Only if all farmers insist on tying up their trousers with a piece of string!
