Since October 2005 many areas of ‘mountain, moor, heath, down and common’ have been mapped in order to provide open access to walkers. All types of ‘access land’ are shown on the new Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps, which carry an access symbol.
This symbol may, in due course, be displayed on the ground to help guide you, at some entry and exit points. The Explorer Maps themselves show all types of access land with a light yellow tint surrounded by a light orange border.
In the Fovant area, the downland to the south of the village has been so designated and access may be gained from the following paths:
|Bridleway 13||011277||Joins Byway 14|
These points have been included in the path descriptions.
The Countryside Code has been revised to coincide with the introduction of the major new right of access.
For more information on both the Code and access it is worth looking at the Countryside Agency's web site
