Public Access to areas of Land

What is Access Land?

CRoW access land is defined as land that is:
• Open Country (land which is wholly or predominantly mountain, moor, heath or down);

• common land;

• dedicated as CRoW access land under the 2000 Act.

It is not always possible to recognise CRoW access land simply by its appearance, so CRoW access land has been mapped by the Countryside Council for Wales. The boundary of CRoW access land may be shown on the ground by a symbol:

Areas of CRoW access land, and most other areas to which the public have access, are shown on the 1:25,000 scale Explorer maps with an orangey-brown border and yellow shading.

Therefore in order to get the best out of the countryside and help maintain it for the future follow the countryside code.
