I agree that the position of the boundary is actually irrelevant and it's the access issue I should investigate. No specifics in the deeds as to the width of the lane, they bushes are beyond the road sign at the side and to me that would seem a sensible suggestion.


If you mean that the hedge used to be cut so that the sign wasn't obstructed, I agree, it's a good starting point for what the width of the track used to be.

What is the surface of the track, does it have any defined edges?

What type of hedge is it, when was it last cut?

This is a bit of flim-flam from the neighbour, it's not how much land he owns but how much of the land you have a right to use is being obstructed.
