Re: Do I own this??

The trackway in question was originally a lane that led to the cemetary. Hi, Was this the only access to the cemetry? If so, how old is the oldest grave stone? I would guess that the lane to a cemetry would be used by everybody who wanted to visit a grave. Personally, I would expect it to be a publ...

Re: CAN THEY DO THIS

Firelogs can cost between £60 - £100 per cubic metre! Hi, Er ..... water weighs 1000kg ( 1 tonne) per cubic metre, I think. As wood floats, it must be less dense, so probably weighs about 800/900kg per cubic metre. ??? I'm guessing that ash must be near the top of the pay scale, so the bloke must be...

Re: CAN THEY DO THIS

Hi, I understand that ASH is the best wood for a fire, as it burns well, even when "green". Thats probably why its called "ash". I think ash has other uses, possibly for making coach-built car bodies. ??? What is fire-wood fetching these days? Last time I bought it, it cost me £20 a ton, I think, bu...

Re: Cows wrecking my fence and garden :(

Hi, Remove a short section of fence ..... in preparation for erecting a stronger fence, get called away on an emergency. Return to find cows in your garden. Barricade them in. Tell farmer that you are keeping them until he pays for the damage to your garden. After a week, you will sell them to recov...

Re: Right of way issue, victorian terrace, no one owns land?

Hi Pilman, Possibly because a hundred years ago land wasn't...

Re: Planning permission relating to public footpath

Hi Keith,

Dunno! But I have looked at several plots with PP, and they have mostly required a 3m wide drive.

Re: Whose wall?

Hi,

I can accept that there are two possible answers, and both seem logical.
I think I'd better get my coat.

Re: Barbed Wire

Hi, My neighbour erected a "wrought iron" fence around his concrete parking area at the end of his garden, rear boundary was a private lane with RoW. Real posh bit of kit, 2 meters high including the SPIKES , galvanised, huge padlock. Pity his plot was only about 15ft wide, but never mind. The local...

Re: Barbed wire fence danger to child

Good idea. That's not sharp is it. Hi Rossenberg, Barbed wire can injure you, even blind you. Hawthorn is unpleasant, but unlikely to be dangerous. Wil the little girl stuggle through a hawthorn bush in order to reach the barbed wire. Oh, OK, make it holly! Hi Despair, I feel for you. I wonder why ...

Re: Unnecessary ROW

Hi,

Leylandi? Ugh!

What about a quarter standard fruit tree planted right on the edge of the RoW .... if you are confident that she will never trim it. I suppose just one tree/bush would be sufficient to make the RoW difficult to pass along. Add more, to taste.

Re: Unnecessary ROW

Hi, Anytime I have considered buying a house with a RoW, I have worked on the assumption that I would have zero control over the RoW, and to all intents and purposes, would not own it .... although I could use it. Worst case scenario, sort of thing. In Sean's circumstances, if this neighbour's use o...

Re: Building decking on a sloping garden - The Law??

As for the security of having PP, I think you get that, in effect, after four years because the council knew of your construction and chose to do nothing about it. Hi, My understanding is that the council cannot demand that you remove your development after 4 years, nor prevent you using it after 1...

Re: Right of way issue, victorian terrace, no one owns land?

Hi, You can take out insurance against losing the RoW .... at the vendor's expense, probably £100 to £200. I'm surprised that your lender has not already demanded this. But as Sudynim said ..... That will go horribly wrong if you get a troublesome neighbour. You only have to read some of the posts i...
