Casual walkway

I think it's great that public walkways are allowed on privately owned land.


"Walkway closed 1 July to 30 September due to lambing.
Beach access safe 2 hrs either side of low tide.
This walkway follows an easement over private land including land once taken by the crown but returned to Ngati Tama (maori tribe) under the Ngati Tama Claims Settlement Act 2003.
Please respect the landowners' properties by keeping to the walkway. 
Use the stiles and do not disturb stock or trap boxes."

It is interesting... in Scotland, there is public right of access even to farmland, assuming correct usage and respect, of course. Given that NZ is the Scotland of the bottom end, I wonder if that in part influenced this? YAM xx

Here in Maine we have land trusts which own part of the hiking area and secure permission from private owners to also cross their property.

An important sign. I would obey it.

That sounds like a win-win situation if everybody obeys the sign! I think it's great too.
