Summer and autumn is a busy time of year for many farmers with field work. It however provides you with an opportunity to undertake maintenance of any Rights of Way (RoW) as well as ensure cross field routes are reinstated in good time.
Below is a list of activities and responsibilities which you have to maintain, regarding Rights of Way. Failure to undertake this maintenance work could lead to a breach of Cross Compliance rules.
If you are uncertain if you have a public right of way on your land, your local authority will normally have a ‘definitive map’ of your area showing the public rights of way.
