Purely sporting or recreational rights over land are capable of being easements, the Supreme Court has confirmed.

In a judgment handed down today the Court held that, so long as such rights satisfy the four well-established characteristics of easements, there is no reason why they should not be easements (Regency Villas Title Ltd and others v Diamond Resorts (Europe) Ltd and others [2018] UKSC 57).
