I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, or if anything similiar has been already posted.
Living in N. Ireland, we don't have many issues regarding access.
If I want to take a short break with my canoe, to England or Wales.. say within the next two weeks, where do I find out about access to a particular river?? Bearing in mind, its not tourist info I'm after, its "legal" access. My idea would be to write to the MP of the area I intend visiting. Explaining that as a tourist to the area wishing to spend my hard earned cash. I would not want to encroach on any local agreements and need the info quite quickly. This would also be copied to the relevant government minister (maybe someone could add the relevant name)
The point to all this is, why not everyone do it, regardless of whether you know the river or not? It could be a bit more coordinated by picking a particular river on a given date, and listing the corresponding MP. Would this be a way of highlighting the issue?
