Rights of way research

The fate of many green lanes depends on whether or not they carry ancient ‘horse-and-cart’ rights. Knowing how to research these legal rights can be crucial to protecting particular routes. It involves looking into historic documents such as enclosure awards and the maps that go with them. If you have these skills and would like to get involved, please get in touch via our PO Box (PO Box 7976, Great Longstone, and Bakewell, DE45 9AY).
