So post number 1 on our shiny new blog and I guess it is a great place to highlight some of the many streams of information that we at BCC HQ receive that you our valued readers should be aware of.
Does January 1st 2026 ring any bells? NO? oh dear…. If you are a walker, a rambler, a cyclist, mountain biker, cyclocross rider, horse rider, byway user, land owner, farmer etc then you need to be aware of a clause in right-to-roam legislation introduced by the Labour government in 2000 stated that any pre-1949 paths must be recorded by 2026 to continue to carry public rights. The Countryside and Rights of Way Act contained a provision that will extinguish those rights if the paths have not been properly recorded.
Over the next few weeks we will look at how this effects us in the parishes of Barton Le Clay and those around us.
