I don't think OP's mother-in-law's property will be involved in the sale of any new ROW - MrD would not need to enter the path immediately behind her property.

That does seem a logical conclusion to draw from what we know but I don't think we know enough for any degree of certainty.

D does seem to have gone to expense and trespass to place the concrete, but we don't know what standard it was laid to.

It's my understanding that even legitimate users of ROWs aren't allowed to change the surface to be of a different description - so even one of the 3 houses legitimately using the ROW couldnt have changed the surface from cobblestones to concrete without consent from the other two.

I'd have fired off a solicitor letter to him from all 3 of you telling him to reinstate the surface the second he swopped it.

NB; I certainly agree with blocking his illicit access - eg with a fence. In fact I'd be inclined to block it with a fence, rather than a wall. Something rather more difficult to remove.
Apologies for not giving exact personal details in my posts - you never know who is reading....
