The article discusses issues on the public rights of way on farms in Great Britain. Karen Jones, chief leal adviser at the Country Land and Business Association, states some responsibilities of farmers concerning a cross-field footpath as an established right of way. A number of readers have contacted "Farmers Weekly," reporting that as a result of the Countryside Rights of Way Act, walkers were tramping across drilled land or even fields with established crops believing that the legislation gave them access across all land.
