Building Countryside Paths and Tracks aims to introduce the reader to the methods required to construct rights of way, from knowing how to navigate a path's definitive line using a map and compass to the inclusion of footbridges across streams and rivers. A practical step-by-step guide to creating, repairing, and restoring a path or track, this book also discusses important safety procedures, materials, and tools. Although aimed primarily at somebody wishing to embark on a practical countryside career, this book is also an essential guide for anyone interested in the background of countryside maintenance. Furthermore, the projects herein can be used in garden projects or for agricultural purposes, and therefore are useful for all those involved in the maintenance of the countryside or landscape gardening.
