Welcome to PATHH:
Providing Access To
PATHH is a county wide project seeking to identify historical routes that can help fill the gaps in Hampshire’s rights of way network. These gaps, identified in Hampshire County Council’s new Countryside Access Plans, can in many instances be improved through other means, but PATHH is focussed on the use of historic research to identify 'lost' rights of way that can be restored. After Hampshire Countryside Access Forum ran a successful pilot project in 2008, the new PATHH project is being expanded across the whole county thanks to support from the National Lottery’s Heritage Lottery Fund.
PATHH was initiated by the Hampshire Countryside Access Forum is managed by the Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology. Additional funding has been provided by the New Forest National Park Authority and further support and guidance has come from Hampshire County Council, the New Forest Access Forum, the South Downs Access Forum and Southampton City Council.
