Walking on Land Funded by Government Grants

Q. Hi, I would like to walk around a field that the farmer is getting paid to leave as a conservation area but he has put up a board saying do not walk here. My argument is if he is getting tax payers money i.e. mine to do this then I should have the right to walk in this area as a tax payer, if it is private land then it should not be funded by public money. I was walking their the other day and he said I will be charged with trespass if I do it again. Please could you clarify for me my legal rights to walk in this area as a tax payer funding this.

A. Unless there is a Right of Way across the field - or the field is designated as Open Access land under the CRoW Act 2000 (The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000) - you DO NOT have a right to walk across it. As far as we're aware, the land owner's use of public funding is irrelevant.
