The definitive guide to rights of way law

The Blue Book 

'The Blue Book' or Rights Of Way: A Guide to Law and Practice as it is officially known, is the definitive guide to rights of way law in England and Wales published jointly by the Ramblers and the Open Spaces Society in 2007.

Now in its fourth edition, the book has been revised and updated by John Riddall and John Trevelyan, two of the leading experts on rights of way law in England and Wales. It is essential reading for anyone involved in rights of way work as well as a fascinating record of the historical and contemporary use of the footpath network in England and Wales.

“The Blue Book’s famed reputation for even-handedness in this complex and controversial field makes it the first port of call for anyone concerned with a dispute concerning public rights of way” says George Laurence QC of New Square Chambers. “I commend it without reservation”.

Complementing the printed book, the Blue Book Extra is an online resource regularly updated by the authors which includes website links referenced in the book, downloadable documents to help readers as well as supplementary material for each chapter to keep the book up to date.
