The whole concept of a public right-of-way seems to boggle the mind of most Americans. Although this would never work in the US, public footpaths and bridle-ways work remarkably well in England. Walkers tend to be very respectful of the land owner’s wishes and usually keep to the path.
This photograph is from a section of the Cotswold Way between Chipping Campden and the Broadway Tower. We really liked the way the path snakes off through this field into the trees in the distance.
