R (Andrews) v Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

[2014] EWHC 1435 (Admin)

27th February 2014

High Court


George Laurence QC and Edwin Simpson act for Mr Andrews who brings this claim with the support of the Ramblers' Association. The case concerns whether s 10, Inclosure Act 1835, authorises the setting out in inclosure awards of footpaths and bridleways at widths of less than 30 feet; and whether the effect of the ouster clause in the same act is in any event to prevent the denial of the effectiveness of such awards considerably more than a century later.
