    Send a letter saying that unless told you cant have access you will go there on such and such a date, shouldnt really have any problems. Is trespass an offence in itself or do you have be causing damge or theft?

    I think that under current thinking a landowners refusal is as much to do with potential liability as trespass. I think that there have been cases of individuals - who trespassed without the landowners knowledge - sustaining injuries (fell down a hole etc) who have then sued the landowners.

    Any person can enter a place if the landowners permit it. However, this does not necessarily make a permanent right of access, and unless they have dedicated a bit of land to be permanently open it is within the power of the landowner to ask any person to leave, assuming that person does not have some other lawful reason to be there. The landowner does not have to give a reason. If the person does not go immediately, by the shortest practical route, then they are trespassing. Despite the well known sign ‘trespassers will be prosecuted’, trespass is not a criminal offence and trespassers cannot usually be prosecuted. They can, however, be sued. There is little chance of such a matter ever being so serious as to be worth suing over, and so this rarely happens.

    The above is an extract from an interpretation of the law of trespass.

    Archbolds is a big thick book used by criminal lawyers as a source of reference. If your ever in an English courtroom you will see the lawyers quoting from it. If you want to buy one its a snip at 350 a copy, and theres a new one out every October!

    Well spotted Alec - and welcome to the forum. Google Streets won't let you near - too many trees, but a good view on Bing
