I don't know if this strictly comes under legal, but I thought id tell you about a recent situation. An old boy who lives in our area has walked our woods for years taking wildlife photos. I think my grandfather gave him permission many years ago, verbally. I think also that he lives in the village he believes he has the "right" to go where he pleases. Anyhow, today, I saw him casually walking across the fields towards our woods and I old him, and explained, He wasn't to wonder where he pleases anymore as I now have stalkers going in the wood, and they're not to know that he's wondering about as he likes. To my surprise he started to argue his case saying "they should learn to aim better!!". I didn't know what to say really, I was a bit taken back.
So i've just put this up here as im sure many of you have had similar situations, and maybe some pointers if any backlash occurs? Maybe something I need to look out for to stay on the legal side if some 20 years ago he'd been allowed to walk there.?
