*British Horse Society Routes and Trails

The British Horse Society

*Byways and Bridleways Trust

'Charitable trust formed in 1979 to protect Britain’s network of ancient minor highways, more usually known as byways and bridleways. The Trustees were radical in their approach: for the first time an organisation would seek to protect for the public the old roads themselves, rather than fight for the special rights of any group of users.'

*Institute of Public Rights of Way and Access Management

'The professional body which represents individuals involved in the management of public rights of way and other access in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, principally as local government officers.'

*Open Spaces Society

'Protecting open spaces, common land, village greens and public paths in England & Wales since 1865.'

*Public Rights of Way

'This Research Guide indicates the principal sources of information about rights of way. It is not a statement of law, and The National Archives cannot give legal advice ... Every way is either a private way or a highway. Strictly speaking, the term "right of way", when it stands alone, relates to a private way: it describes the right enjoyed by a particular person or group of people to pass over land which belongs to another. Such a group of people may be as loosely defined as "the public" ...'

*Rights of Way and Accessing Land

'Public rights of way are roads, paths or tracks that are open to everyone - open access land, what to do if your access is blocked and land with no right of way ...'
