Rights of Way: A guide to law and practice, or the Blue Book as it's affectionately known, is an essential work of reference for those who, either as professional or volunteer footpath workers, need to know about footpath law and practice in England and Wales. It is also an invaluable and readable book for anyone who walks in the countryside or who helps to protect and maintain paths, or who is simply fascinated by them.
This third edition, jointly published by the Ramblers' Association and the Open Spaces Society in June 2001, gives the law on public rights of way in England and Wales as at 1 April 2001. It takes account of the way law and practice have developed over the ten years since the last edition, including changes made by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.
The book gives the actual text of many government Acts, Regulations and advisory circulars (though the CRoW act itself is not reproduced in full, since many of its provisions have not yet come into effect) and provides details of many important cases.
