Can you please send me a drawing of Historical Rights of Way at Pottington playing fields in Barnstaple, as far as I know there has always been Rights of Way in the playing fields area.
We have linked below an extract of the original Definitive Map of public rights of way showing the Pottington area of Barnstaple Rural District, and which has a relevant date of 1st September 1957. We have also linked an extract of our digitised map, which reflects the original Definitive Map and any legal changes made to the network since it was published. Footpaths are shown purple and bridleways shown green.
There is no public right of way shown at Pottington playing fields.
If you think that a public right of way exists and should be shown you can Apply for a definitive map modification order – Public Rights of Way (devon.gov.uk). This is a legal process which enables such claims to be tested
