Sussex Area AGM - Robertsbridge - 31st January 2015

On a day of mixed weather conditions, Saturday 31st January, Sussex Area Ramblers held their AGM in Robertsbridge, East Sussex hosted by Rother Ramblers. The morning started with snow showers causing some from far afield, who intended to come, to turn back as road conditions deteriorated and accidents impeded their progress. Nevertheless the snow abated by 10:30 when 12 intrepid walkers went on a short 5 mile walk around the surrounding High Weald countryside. The walk was led by Janet Eason who stepped in at very short notice when the planned leader rang-in (at 07:30) feeling sick. Read more about Sussex Area AGM - Robertsbridge - 31st January 2015

2026 and all that!

You may have heard the date 2026 mentioned in relation to public rights of way and have been wondering what's it all about. Well unless you are prepared to take some action it could be that after that date you will be unable to use paths you've walked for many years, as they will be no longer available to you!

The Definitive Map (DM) of public rights of way shows the paths that we all enjoy using and provides the rights of way information shown on OS maps. The presence of a route on the DM is conclusive proof in law that the public has the rights shown. Read more about 2026 and all that!
