I think the quote sums it up...
I can't use the river for the purpose which I bought it for, it's obvious that I no longer have a fishery.

I think BC and CW should post a response on this forum at least, to this nonsense and also see if the same paper will print their reply.
This bloke is trying to cause all sorts of problems. If his ideas are not countered some people might believe them......

I've seen it on there somewhere; maybe in WoW or one of the paddling groups.

New Paper on the River Access for All site.
River Access for All wrote:
The above evidence (see page 2) seems sufficient to establish the existence of a common law Public
Right of Navigation on all rivers in England and Wales which are physically capable of navigation.
How and when the common law PRN was created is lost to the mists of time.
This PRN on the Rivers Wye and Lugg and all tributaries flowing into them was specifically
confirmed and given statutory status by “An Act for the making navigable the Rivers Wye and Lugg,
and the Rivers and Brooks running into the same, in the Counties of Hereford, Gloucester and
Monmouth.” -1662 and “An Act for making navigable the Rivers of Wye and Lugg in the County of
Hereford.”- 1695. The publications referenced demonstrate that the PRN
• was not limited to the county of Hereford and this was
• recognised by Parliament,
• recognised by the officers of The County of Radnor,
• recognised by traders on the river system,
• recognised by landowners
• recognised by other river users

We can find no reference to any landowner disputing the existence of public navigation rights on the
upper Wye until the twentieth century by which time public navigation rights had been established for
hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Public navigation rights, once established, can only be
extinguished by Act of Parliament or by exercise of powers delegated by Parliament for the purpose
(e.g. the National Assembly of Wales) . The Wye Navigation Order of 2002 specifically confirms
that such navigation rights on the upper river and tributaries have not been repealed. Therefore they
still exist.
