2004 - January 22
The footpath officer tells us that: 'the county council is of the opinion that the evidence provided by you may be sufficient to establish the existence of a public right of way on foot and are treating the claimed route accordingly'. (122, 128)
2004 - February 9
It is announced that the temporary footpath closure has been extended until September which would bring the closure up to 13 months in total. (126)
2004 - February 25
We hear from the footpath officer that: 'As far as the County Council is aware, there was no extension to the temporary closure'. (127)
2004 - March 2
The footpath officer tells us that: 'It appears that the 'Road Works' page on the Durham County Council web page was incorrectly compiled, implying that the extension had been made. The culprits have been notified and the web page should be altered ASAP'. (129)

The law locks up the man or woman,
Who steals the goose from off the common,
But leaves the greater villain loose,
Who steals the common from the goose.
