Abstract/Summary

This paper presents a case-study of valuation of public access to a woodland site owned by The Crown Estate in Windsor Forest. It supports the view that contingent valuation is an appropriate technique to use for assessing recreational benefits in the countryside and that consistent and useful results can be obtained. The study found that the recreational benefits far outweighed the costs of access provision, thus giving reassurance to the providers that their efforts are worthwhile.
