Having just joined this forum it has been quite enlightening.

For those who may pick up this thread, please forgive the blatant bit of advertising.

In September, I shall be offering Certified Navigation Training, it is a blended version of the core disciplines of the National Navigation Award Scheme and the skills of off road driving. This is very much back to basics navigation so if you are interested in advancing your skill set please drop me an email.

Please note between 13 Jul - 04 Aug 2012, I shall be in Mongolia, so there may be a delay in getting a response.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Great introduction Teflon. Personally as an experienced hill walker and runner I'd not be without a paper map, they never suffer from battery failure or poor signal.

Here's Cambridgeshire's take on it

http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/environment/countrysideandrights/

if you click on the "find your rights of way" link you go here http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/environment/countrysideandrights/enjoying/findrightsofway.htm

And can also get info on TROs here http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/environment/countrysideandrights/public/trafficregulationorders.htm

A lot of these around Ely are currently closed due to the very wet summer we had. I run and mountain bike on them and can see why. They're hard as a rock now, but show a lot of damage from farm traffic with some very deep ruts in some places.

Cheers, Dave

Just to add to this excellent thread. Things have changed since this thread first started, in 2015 the government snuck through an act called the Deregulation Act. This was supposed to be about red tape, but the act ended up being "added to" by lots of organisations and individuals for allsorts of purposes.

"Green Lanes" were targeted by organisations such as the Ramblers Association, GLEAM and Open Spaces who put a lot of time and effort in putting their case on rights of way and access, regardless of traditional user rights. When the act got to the House of Lords, various members of the upper house had their own interests at heart and added to the growing list of changes and revisions to rights of way. You can see some more detail from my post in 2015 http://forum.lro.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=94830

The end result was in basic terms a total rewrite of the rights of way. You need to be aware of the changes, and as Teflon pointed out you need to know where you can and can not go. Here is a basic guide from GLASS : https://www.glass-uk.org/index.php/rights-of-way

There are now numerous TRO's often described as experimental so you will need check with your counties rights of way officer if you are not clear about a route. Most off road clubs have someone who knows, especially GLASS affiliated clubs. As you can see from this link it gets all rather muddy if you pardon the pun : https://www.gov.uk/guidance/rights-of-way-order-information-start-date-notices-inquiry-hearing-notices-and-rejection-letters

Not all councils are the same and some are making efforts to try and deal with the current situation, bearing in mind there will have to be a new definitive map made. This link shows Kent County Council "interactive guide" : http://webapps.kent.gov.uk/KCC.ExploreKent.Web.Sites.Public/Default.aspx
