Right to Roam: CROW Act turns 20

(1/5) > >>

PeteHall:
Nice article over on the BMC:


--- Quote ---Happy birthday to the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act! It's been 20 years of being able to legally enjoy a stroll across open access land, up open access hills and mountains and into open country moor, heath and down. But how did this come about and are we satisfied with current access levels? Read on for a bit of history and let us know your thoughts by taking the survey linked at the end.

Judi Durber:


This touches on the history of land ownership

On a similar theme, a pressure group has been established by Nick Hayes (author of The Book of Trespass), George Monbiot and others, to campaign for CROW to be extended to rivers, woodland and green belt.  Those who would like to see caving included might find find it worthwhile to put their views across at https://www.righttoroam.org.uk/.

Fjell:
It is utterly idiotic to give right to roam over cultivated farmland. There are a vast number of excellent reasons that is excluded from CRoW. We have a very dense network of public footpaths in England that works just fine.

Also not very clear what is the difference between a wheat field in green belt and one not in green belt. Maybe our man in Islington can enlighten us? He’s an expert.

I don't think anyone has pronounced their support for right to roam on cultivated land.

I'm not sure what your second paragraph means, can you elaborate? Who in Islington do you think is an open access expert and what question would you ask them and why?
