Restoring the Record – Rights of Way Training

Posted by on September 20th 2017
November 19th 2017 @ 9.30am – 4.00pm
The York Room
Bicester OX26 1TE

A meeting for members of  the Open Spaces Society:-

Our trustee, Phil Wadey, together with his colleague and co-author Sarah Bucks, will be presenting a workshop based on their book Rights of Way – Restoring the Record at the The York Room, Bicester Hotel and Spa, Chesterton, Bicester OX26 1TE on Sunday 19 November 2017. The aim of the training event is to enthuse, enable and empower rights of way researchers to make definitive map modification order applications to ensure that rights that would be extinguished in 2026 are saved from the cut-off-date.

The day will concentrate on identifying routes, the key sources of evidence of historic ways, where that information is located, what it can tell us, and how a systematic research method can be employed to undertake this work.

Please visit the hotel website for details of how to find the venue.

Includes: tea, coffee & biscuits. Refreshments are available at the hotel or please bring a packed lunch.

Booking & queries:, 02476 840720, with reference: RWRTR-19-11.

There is no charge for this event but delegates will have to meet their own travel expenses. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please bring a copy of Rights of Way – Restoring the Record if you have one, and a laptop so that you can take part in some practical activities. (Smart phones and tablets may not be suitable for all activities but may be better than nothing.) Wi-fi is provided.

Copies of the second edition of Rights of Way – Restoring the Record will be available to buy at a discounted rate for attendees on the day.

Please note that a limited number of spaces are still available for the Restoring the Record training day to be held in Henley-on-Thames on Saturday 18 November. Details are available on our website. Please contact me as below if you would like to attend the Henley training day.
