Want to check historic rights on a track but don’t know where to start?
Need to find extra evidence before a public inquiry?
Worried about your first visit to an archive office?
Experienced, but just want to check which Act authorised which activities?
For each of the most commonly used documentary evidence types, this book explains where the evidence can be found, why it is of value to proving or disproving highway status, and how to set out an application for a definitive map modification order.
There are notes on the national and county archive offices and helpful hints and time saving tips on how to carry out the research.
It explains in detail how to initiate the legal process and, step by step, how to follow it through to an order being made.
It includes a long list of the Acts and Schedules which make up the legal background to current rights of way law.
