Is there any law at all that would allow us to temporarily dig up a short piece of unadopted road that we do not own (but, along with the general public, have right of way over) for the purpose of providing water/sewage/gas to a listed building that we own at the end of said road? Our neighbours (who believe that they jointly own the road - how could I find out if this is true?) won't give us permission - even though we would put the road back to good condition (we would even fund the tarmacing of it, it's presently mud and weeds). Their reason is that they don't want the disturbance of the property being used for any purpose - they would rather it fell down! It's a lovely victorian tower and deserves to be saved from decay. We would only want to use it for simple pleasures - bird watching, a little windsurfing and escaping from the hurly burly of normal life. I believe (but don't know how to prove) that the building may have once had at least some of these services as it was once used as mission/chapel. If there are old pipes sevicing the bulding already under the road - would we have the right to renew/replace them?


Thank you

Fame at last - maybe leading to fortune. Can't use that picture as a final 'confirmer' because I live too far away to check it out. And the shots of the island I have found are from a distance. Oh, well I think I'm right - Semper Fidelis!

Got an email from The Hairy Bikers' team this a.m. informing us that that particular HB now lives on the island, adding 'There goes the neighbourhood.....'!


Fortune - unlikely; fame we can do without!
