The Ramblers do not want to claim lost rights of way going through buildings including people’s houses. Volunteers were asked to mark-up paths which appeared on historical maps and we recognise that some areas have seen a significant development in the last 120 years. We want to add paths to the map which will improve the network for all. Identifying a potential lost right of way is the start of the process and further research and consultation is required before the local authority confirms a right of way – in some cases it is possible and appropriate to apply for a diverted version of a historical route.
I've found a potential lost path which goes through my house or garden - should I be worried?
