Erection of a fence on a public highway Title deed hd 485788

Request Description

Title deed  hd 485788

when was the fence erected on this public highway?

With who's authority or permission?

If subject to any bylaws please show documentation. The charge register does not show any entries relating to the fence other than "shall not  be fenced off or built upon but shall and may from time to time and at all times here after be used by all persons as a public free wharf for the purpose of loading and unloading of barges or other craft on the said river without any interference on their part whatsoever" so who built the fence?

This agreement/contract appears to have been broken by the trustees of the river.

Under what lawful or legal rights are the trustees of the river able to gain riparian ownership of both sides of this part of the river without informing land owners on the River Lee off side when they have broken the contract.
