The Lost Paths Project

Many historic paths i.e. those that came into existence before 1949 but which are not registered will be lost forever if we do not act now. The Countryside and Rights of Way (CroW) Act 2000 has brought in a deadline of 2026. All paths must be recorded on the Definitive Map. Many of these paths are in regular use, particularly around villages and are far from 'lost'. Tony Dale, our Group's Footpath Officer, presented what we need to do to save these paths'.
