Are you the kind of person who enjoys detective work and old maps?

If so, then why not help Hampshire Countryside Access Forum to identify old routes that should be on the modern map of public rights of way?

The forum advises the County Council on countryside recreation. Members regularly walk, cycle or ride in Hampshire. This project follows local research which has shown that there is public demand for more routes to and within the countryside.
