Right to Roam

Wow .... I wonder if you would feel the same if we all come traipsing through your property taking what we wanted, dumping rubbish , scaring your pregnant or with young livestock... I may have slightly agreed with you but in the last 6 months with the great British public venturing out illegal camping , poaching , endangering livestock , vandalising woods and trees and pretty much any other I can do what I want behaviours there should be stricter anti trespassing laws.. I’ve seen people poaching , dumping rubbish, shooting crossbows , dogs chasing wildlife and livestock and that was only in the last two days...

@MattyF the right to roam  is just that not a right to do the things you suggest which are all criminal acts. I only own a cottage with a small garden with a well used sidewalk at the front and public footpath to the side with hedges but no locked gates to prevent people trespassing, it seldom happens but I do regularly find poo bags and litter chucked into the hedges and have had things stolen from the garden and cars.

 

The right to roam is also restrictive on CROW access land and is not the same as the rights on registered common or section 15 land.

 

All those things you mention also happen on other public places like roads, parks and  the foreshore to which people have rights of access which you wish to curtail.

 

Don't get me wrong, I am appalled at the things people do in the countryside  and from a nature conservation point of view I was against the wholesale opening up of some land but to restrict access to the countryside unless you can afford to own it was ended with by the mass trespass on Kinder Scout.

 

The problem with  younger people not being concerned about the countryside is "That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone"

Get loads of trespassing at the moment especially one guy who walks his dog ( off lead ) in the park and woods and always leaves his fosters cans in the same place! I had enough of this messy twat so I set a poachers alarm up with a 12g cartridge ( shot removed ) it got triggered and haven’t seen him since !. God I wish I had set a camera up ?
