Ref: 9780957403611 Price: £32.00

Want to check historic rights on a track but don't know where to start?
Need to find extra evidence before a public inquiry?
Experienced, but just want to check which Act authorised which activities?
Then you need Rights of Way: Restoring the record.

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.

This book is an essential guide for the novice, and an invaluable reference book for the more experienced.

It will appeal to user groups, local authority rights of way practitioners, land agents, land owners and property lawyers, as well as local historians and those interested in their part of the countryside.

This second edition contains new examples, updates on searching for documents, suggested projects for systematic and group research, and expanded notes on legislation and case law.

Comment on the first edition: "Sarah and Phil share their view that research into 'lost ways', and the preparation of definitive map modification order applications is not some black art available to only a few, but something to be carried out systematically and to a reasonably standard formula." Byway and Bridleway
