Does anyone have any information please with regard to private land.
My mate has shooting in a large forest , private but with marked footpaths and bridle ways. Unfortunately the usual crowd who think they have their rights are always around.
The place has been vastly improved for runners, dog walkers etc. to enjoy as decent hard-core road have been put in. All paths marked and private areas fenced off. Yet this eve as we turned up a local was running through the private part having cut through the temporary tie wraps on a double get (twice) but that now has a lock on it.
When challenged in a polite manor he said he knew the area was private but it needed to have signs put up...he refuse to give his name and carried on.
What signs are needed ie wording size etc and where from please, this also applies to our high seats as I am sure one of these idiots will see one soon and have a peek at it or wreck it.
Also if he is on the private ground can a photo be taken of him , I believe in a public place this is legal?
Utterly ironic as he was trespassing , running with a dog off the lead , no collar as he went onto the public highway....Most likely carry a knife to have cut the tie wraps....so actually commuting several possible offences ..
Would really like to halt the trespassing of such idiots but need to know how to go about it legally of course.
I have though about graffiti paint on the areas where folk climb the fences.
