- Footpath & rights of way across farm land
Are farmers allowed to plough across footpaths?
Near me, on one of my regular dog walks, there’s a couple of paths across farmers fields. Every year these get ploughed across, meaning they turn into virtually impassable mud baths. Is the farmer allowed to do this or should he avoid them?Posted 4 years agoNicoMember
I am not a rights of way officer, but, I think you are only allowed to walk across a field by the footpath. If it has been ploughed up and not reinstated in the time limit stated above then you can still only reinstate it yourself – no choosing your preferred route round the outside.Posted 4 years ago
