Hi,

Can anyone provide an email address for the above orgs.

Query is about open access (or not) land in SW England. Trying to find out what the correct position is regarding land shown on OS maps as open access but not on N.E. maps. Land is managed by Forestry Commission but under a private lease (I believe).

Due to nature of inquiry I'd prefer a written response rather than a phone conversation, but can't seem to find email addresses by using google.

Thanks
Andy

Thanks Shani,

Just need OS email address now

Online contact for OS means I can't copy all parties in or keep a copy for my records (defense...).

If you use that contact link they might email you back (or simply use the link to ask for an email address).

Open.Access@naturalengland.org.uk is the direct email although the enquiries one will get there too.

Did you get to the .GOV pages? https://www.gov.uk/right-of-way-open-access-land/use-your-right-to-roam

I'm interested since we're checking how effective these pages are...and yes, I know, they're not great!

Yes I did get to the .gov pages, these were helpful in understanding my rights if I was on open access land and did lead me to the Natural England maps.

My problem is that (as far as I know) the OS map shows the area as open access whilst the NE maps don't. Don't want to go into details of things as I'm not sure how the incident will progress - I'd rather email NE/OS/FC and get their combined response as to whether I had a right to be on the land or not. Reason for trying to get a combined response is that if I contact the individual orgs I fully expect to get an 'off the shelf response' unless I can convey that I need a more detailed response.

Never felt more like a Serf before

I apologise on behalf of the entire civil service ;-)

Sometimes the NE maps need updating re: CROW S16 dedications but I'd usually expect the OS to take the info from 'our' maps

Rights of way marked on OS maps are not definitive and I'd expect that to be the case for Access Land also.

Didn't mean to attack the entire civil service ;-).

I was upset about the way I had been treated for walking somewhere I thought I had a right to be, it ruined an otherwise excellent day out. Apology for how I was treated has been received and I'll now be more careful about arguing about my rights... The civil service can rest in peace ;-).

We live and learn...
