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!
