We want to create a better picture of our lost paths across England and Wales. Once we have this map, we will then work with our volunteers to help prioritise which paths need further investigation. To put a path back on the map we need to prove that it was public in the past and that this public right was not legally ceased. This is done through extensive historical research. We will be building further tools over the coming months to support this research stage. There's more information on how these applications work here:https://www.ramblers.org.uk/advice/improve-the-path-network/how-to-claim-an-unrecorded-right-of-way.aspx
What happens after I find a lost path?
