Right to Roam

Recommended Posts

In England and Wales, unless the wood is part of a designated open access area which will be clearly marked as such on an Ordnance Survey map, there is definitely no right to roam and if there are no public rights of way through the wood, trespassers are committing a civil offence. If they trespass and steal wood or damage anything, they are committing aggravated trespass which is a criminal offence. 

Also, read the countryside code (which is a legal document). It is an offence to allow a dog to run off the lead on open access land during the wildlife breeding season.
