To trespass or not to trespass
If we even think of our right to walk across forbidden landscapes as trespass – or ourselves as trespassers – are we admitting that we have no right to be there and that the landowner has absolute rights to the land, to the exclusion of all others?
We, very sadly, have a government that is particularly anti-walker.
They seem determined to make criminals out of walkers who walk on land where they have always walked.
Isn’t it time that bodies like the Ramblers Association got a tad more militant?
Let us bring back Forbidden Britain day.
Let us campaign for access legislation on the Scottish model.
I suggest the reasons why we should in “The Compleat Trespasser”.
Let us throw timidity and caution to the wind.
This is YOUR land – time to enjoy the right to roam across it!
