On 1st January 2026, unrecorded and under-recorded historic public rights of way will cease to exist.

Comments Off on On 1st January 2026, unrecorded and under-recorded historic public rights of way will cease to exist.

It’s scary to think how many routes, including some that we take for granted because ‘there has never been a problem’, could be lost forever if we don’t all do our bit to get them recorded on the definitive map before the 2026 deadline. The deadline is close, but THERE IS STILL TIME TO ACT!

Sarah Bucks and Phil Wadey, authors of the research guide: ‘Rights of Way: Restoring the Record’ run FREE TRAINING DAYS on researching and recording rights of way.

The training days are designed to help:

  • Check historic rights on a track;
  • Find extra evidence before a public inquiry;
  • Have confidence to visit an archive office;
  • Check which Act authorized which activities.

Training days in mid/South Wales, organized by Waters of Wales – WoW:

Saturday 23rd March 2019 – Newtown (Powys)

Sunday 24th March 2019 – Glasbury on Wye.

Open to all: BOOKING ESSENTIAL on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

BOOK BY EMAIL: admin@watersofwales.org stating which date/venue you wish to attend, and the names + email contact address of all attendees you are booking for.

THE TRAINING DAYS ARE FREE TO ATTEND.  The costs are borne by the Waters of Wales – WoW campaign, which campaigns for fair, shared, sustainable open access for ALL.  If you wish to contribute towards the costs, donations via PayPal to admin@watersofwales.org will be very welcome.

If you have any queries, please email admin@watersofwales.org, or visit the Facebook page where you can message the admin team:

Have you witnessed speeding along the A40?

Comments Off on Have you witnessed speeding along the A40?

Following years of lobbying Welsh Government the Community Council was pleased when earlier this year traffic calming works were undertaken on the A40 in Glangrwyney and a pedestrian island constructed.

How effective the current measures prove will only be assessed over time however the Community Council believe additional measures, ie electronic speed signs, need to be provided to encourage drivers to stay within the 30 mph speed limit.  When the Council approached Welsh Government with this request it was informed a 3 year Speed Limit Review into road safety issues at over 600 sites on all trunk roads in Wales (including this section of the A40) is currently being undertaken and any works arising will be prioritised, as funding permits, over the next three to four years.

Whilst disappointed with this response the Community Council continues to monitor the position  and suggests if you witness dangerous driving or speeding in the village these concerns are reported to Go Safe, the Road Safety Partnership responsible for speed limit enforcement by clicking here
