Hi Oz, Please be sure to keep to the Public Rights of Way and drive responsibly. It is important that we present the right image to both the Police and the MOD. There is a new man in charge and we are trying to keep him onside regarding continued access.

In recent years great changes have taken place to the public rights of way on the Plain, many of the old routes shown on OS maps have been either "stopped up" (a legal term for closed) or have had the definitive line changed. I would therefore advice caution and careful research before going out for a drive.

On the plus side there is one newly designated byway, :yipi: the first in the country, and many permissive routes which have been negotiated with the DIO (Defence Infrastructure Organisation) as a trade off against those stopped up, sadly these don't, as yet show up on the current OS maps. There has also been an extensive way marking project undertaken jointly by DIO, Wiltshire Council and Treadlightly to help us all stay on the right track.

The following are links which, I think, you will find useful in planning a route:
http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/communityan ... apping.htm
http://php.wiltshire.gov.uk/row/closure ... search.php
https://www.gov.uk/government/news/gree ... tice-guide

Hope this is helpful, if you have a query on any particular part of your route drop me a PM I will try my best to help. :yes:
