Paton v Devon County Council and Another: Admn 16 Jan 2013

The claimants appealed against rejection of their assertion of a local right of way. They referred to old maps. The respondent relied on the definitive map showing an alternate right of way since 1950.
Held: Though the claimant had a strong case, there was a sufficient basis of evidence for the recorder to have found as he did. There was no basis in law to challenge his findings.
