  • Thank you for your enquiry. With harvest now fast approaching it would not be practical to enforce the landowner to re-instate this path. However the landowner will be contacted and reminded of their statutory responsibilities to ensure that all Rights of Way that cross their arable land are kept clear/marked out on the ground and to remain marked all year round.
