How we protect and improve access

  • We protect off road access and work to extend it where possible 
  • We record legal rights, preserve and reinstate routes, and fundraise to defend endangered rights of way for riders and carriage drivers 
  • Localised advice, support and assistance is provided through our network of dedicated access officers 
  • We also organise events and training around the UK to provide you with the information you need to defend your rights of way 
  • We offer extensive downloadable resources to support you and your team
