PROWL presents to Tynwald

The organiser of 'Public Rights of Way Langness', or PROWL, is hoping for action from the Council of Ministers, after the organisation made a presentation to Tynwald this week.

Ian Costain says the aim was to explain to politicians why Langness matters to them, to show the paths have perfect credentials for being given 'right of way' status and how Manx law can be applied to achieve that end.

Trails around the peninsula have been the subject of a long-running dispute between PROWL and Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson. He who owns the old lighthouse cottages and the surrounding land, which some of the trails run into.

Mr Costain says things may now be moving in the right direction as far as his organisation is concerned (audio file attached):
