The previous owner of my property enjoyed access both by foot

Customer Question

The previous owner of my property enjoyed access both by foot and vehicle accross a padock abutting the side of the property. This has been used continually from the mid 1950's and relatives and neighbours are willing to confirm this use. The owners of the paddock now tell me I may not use this access. What is my legal position please? (This is not shown on Land registry docs.)

Can you explain your situation a little more please? On what basis is he now refusing access? Because he has changed his mind?
