The final warning to the indolent paper owner has expired. It appears that these statutory provisions have been implemented in the face of growing concerns as to the scarcity of land, which will be no less of a problem in forthcoming years, when practical effects of the act begin to take hold.

This does not mean the applicant does not need to prove an intention to dispossess. Hunting, shooting and fishing land was once a common feature of our rural environment. An area made famous in writings like Great Expectations by Charles Dickens but particularly after two world wars it became a popular spot for house boats or mussel bed farmers. A place where farmers would call to collect seaweed for fertilizer, from where people could fish or where not stony ride a horse or collect samphire at low tide.
The House of Lords have clarified the position, establishing that the factual possession- not necessarily of an adverse nature, and an intention to possess, ordained ownership upon a squatter of a plot of registered land. Rousseau's extravagant discourse has successfully expressed the traditional approach to the laws of adverse possession. These are difficult to prove or argue but perhaps an example might be on the facts of Davies v.
