Shelford and District Bridleways Group (SDBG) is pleased to announce "Call to Action", an open presentation by Dr Phil Wadey, historical advisor to the British Horse Society Access and Rights of Way Advisory Committee.

The race is on to seek out, log with the local authorities and thereby protect our unrecorded historic routes for future generations.

Time: 7:45pm.

Admission: free to SDBG and BHS members (proof of membership please) Others: £2

England’s Rights of Way network is a wonderful amenity enabling walkers, cyclists and equestrians to access the benefits of our beautiful countryside. Its safe, off road routes provide a valuable resource for recreation and sustainable transport together with health benefits for all. SDBG invites anyone interested in countryside access to attend this talk with a view to user groups, local authorities, historians and others working together to seek out, record and preserve our unrecorded highways before they are lost.

Please note, 1 January 2026 is the cut-off date established by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 when unrecorded pre-1949 Rights of Way will cease to exist.
