Abstract
This dataset has been created to show areas of 'access land' designated under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. It shows both Open Country and Registered Common Land combined into a single layer with areas of Section 28 restrictions, military byelaw, race courses and aerodromes removed.

Access land is open to the public on foot, subject to certain local restrictions and practical exceptions, for example, houses and gardens.

Lineage
Created under the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000, the Access Layer data was digitised from OS MasterMap and Landline by the contractors Black and Veatch Consulting Limited and the Geodata Institute on behalf of the Countryside Agency. The military byelaw and section 28 land originated from the MoD.
