Access and recreation

Historically, most areas of common land in Wales have been open for public access with the consent of the landowner.  In May 2005 the Countryside Rights of Way Act (CRoW) established common land, mountain, moor, heath and down as open access land where people can walk in some of the most spectacular landscapes in Wales.  These areas are clearly marked on Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps; for more information contact www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk.  Horse riding and cycling remain confined to bridleways.  Dogs must be kept under close control at all times and on a lead where there are grazing animals. To find out more visit www.ccw.gov.uk for up to date information.
