The community in Osmington and visitors to the village value Roman road as a recreational resource for rambling, horse riding, cycling, dog walking and conservation.

The unmade bridleway is featured on historical tithe maps and was the traditional route into the village for generations. It features in many historic photographs, maps and documents as well as artistic paintings by John Constable.

The bridleway is of particular historical interest to the village's social history and should be designated as a heritage asset.

We want the local planning authority to recognise that heritage assets like Roman road are an irreplaceable resource and conserve them in a manner appropriate to their significance.

They should be actively protected from damage and development (under the Highways Act) for the benefit of future generations and the enjoyment of recreational users.
