As per another post, right of ways are footpaths for everyone to trudge upon. Are they set up and maintained by the national govt, or perhaps the county or municipal govts?
Are they on public land or, as the name implies on private land with the owners permission. Which leads me to another question(so much for 'one more question') in a nutshell what are the trespass laws in the UK like? Are they different from county to county?
I have sent away for several brochures on these footpaths and walks for the South Downs and the rest of Sussex, and I want to be clear in case I inadvertantly stray 'off path'. And I guess just pulling up next to the footpath and pitching camp is not the correct way.
Anyways, off to pour over my maps!
