It is all too possible to round a corner on horseback and come upon a group of cattle with no prior warning -this WILL result in a horse being badly spooked at best, bolting at worst -it is only a matter of time ........... read more

"May I suggest before you resign from the national trust, you consider using your rights as a member to apply for access to documentation showing good title to the common lands you refer to? "

I read with interest your segment on HORSEYTALK, something I have been contributing too for some time now, I mainly get involved with common lands rights of way for access for all although sometimes for equestrian/bridle paths which are a definitive ancient right.
Your contact with Peter mentions your membership of BHS, not a trustworthy organisation, I came to that conclusion whilst a member, but only for a short while, but enough was enough, that organisation is for status, jobs for the boy's/girls, with no intention of getting involved with helping members retaining rights of passage etc.
The National Trust are of the same persuasion where the misappropriation, misuse of its members trust in claiming to own or have other legal rights over common land such as giving or granting rights for various activities when in fact they have no locus stan-di at all, apart from the rights to protect ancient monuments on common land but no jurisdiction elsewhere on the common.
Your intention to resign from both organisations is the best ever, but may I suggest before you resign from the national trust, you consider using your rights as a member to apply for access to documentation showing good title to the common lands you refer to?
I can however support my claim that NT, do not have any lawful occupation to Leith Hill, this is from records obtained on the status of "Wotton Common" which includes Leith Hill and in fact any common lands in Surrey, Peter will.can assure you of my knowledge on common law legislation.
Anyway, the purpose of this email is just to make contact, but should you wish not to respond, the cycling is unlawful not only by common land legislation but also under the road traffic acts.
