DEFINITIVE MAP MODIFICATION ORDER 2022
The above Order made on 9th June, if confirmed as made, will modify the Definitive Map and Statement for the area by: UPGRADING Footpath No.28, Wembury to a public bridleway. This path is a public bridleway. It is situated in the administrative district of the South Hams and in the civil parish of Wembury. It starts at GR (SX 5309 4907) at its junction with the southern section of Footpath No.25 Wembury and Warren Lane. The bridleway known as Brownhill Lane follows a hedged lane in a west south westerly direction to GR (SX 5293 4900) then goes northwards crossing Footpath No.29, Wembury and continues north and west following Brownhill Lane to Mewstone Avenue. The bridleway crosses Mewstone Avenue and continues north along the Brownhill Lane and ends on Church Road at GR (SX 5260 4933). The width of the bridleway for the most part varies between 2.1 metres and 4metres where it is defined between hedge banks. At point A it is 6.5metres with the junction of Warren Road and 10.7 metres at point E in the splay with Church Road. The total length of the bridleway is approximately 800 metres, and the surface is predominately compacted stone and earth.
A copy of the order and the order map may be seen free of charge at Public Rights of Way Section, Rm 8, Great Moor House, Bittern Road, Sowton, Exeter EX2 7NL and South Hams District Council Follaton House, Plymouth Road, Totnes between the hours of 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
