Local History -Path Detectives

Local History with the Path Detectives (new)

THY Wednesdays 1015-1215 fortnightly from 3rd Oct
Convener: Chris Smith

Please note: This is a rerun of the course that ran in the spring 2018 term. There will be no new material for the autumn term.

At the end of 2025 most rights of way that existed before 1949 but are
not on the rights of way map will be abolished. So a small group has
been trying to find these lost rights of way and add them to the map
using historical documents. This set of lectures tells you about what we
have discovered, and encourages you to become a path detective
yourself.
Find out about the crack on the head that lost Kingston a footpath, the
council members of Firle who hated roads, the mysterious bridleway on
Malling Down, the saga of Cockshut Road, the bridge-breaking Gwynnes of Folkington, and much more history that rarely makes it into the history books.

Each week a puzzle or two will be set which you can try to solve if you
wish.
