A planning dispute going back almost 60 years, over a rutted country lane deep in Somerset, has finally been resolved.
After a battle, believed to be one of the longest in British legal history, the lane outside a cottage once occupied by siblings Archie and Ivy Peppard will be removed as a right of way from the official map.
The Peppards, who launched the fight in 1959 when they claimed they were besieged by walkers traipsing past their front door, did not live long enough to witness the victory.
The dispute went all the way to the High Court before a planning inspector agreed that the lane in High Ham was not historically a public right of way.
