Only 9 years left to save our footpaths

The process which path workers all over England and Wales have used since the first definitive maps appeared in the 1950s, and which has steadily extended our freedoms everywhere, will become a dead letter. The ancient legal maxim on which so many claimants have relied, ‘once a highway always a highway’, will be shattered. Unrecorded paths, even if they are still in use, could and often will be lost for ever.

Make sure that the footpaths you commonly use are marked as such or they could soon be lost completely.
I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)
