The British Horse Society and The Ramblers have joined forces for another year to hold Restoring the Record training courses across England. The aim of the training events is to enthuse, enable and empower rights of way researchers to make definitive map modification order applications to ensure routes that would be extinguished in 2026 are saved from the cut off date.
Learn how to identify historical routes and the key resources used to study them from two acknowledged experts in the field, Sarah Bucks and Dr Phil Wadey, co-authors of 'Rights of Way Restoring the Record'. Find out what your evidence can unlock and how to create a systematic research method to investigate your routes.
Mark Weston, Director of Access for The British Horse Society said: "We are thrilled to be working with the Ramblers on this important initiative. It is imperative we encourage as many people as possible to research their local routes to ensure they are not lost to future generations come 2026."
Janet Davis, Senior Policy at the Ramblers, added: "There is much to be done to ensure that our historic path network is properly researched and recorded before the 2026 cut-off date. These events will ensure that volunteers from both organisations have the knowledge they need to do the job."
This exclusive training is free and includes lunch and refreshments.
Time: 9.30am to 4.30pm.
