This might be a silly question to some, but here goes...
Is it a legal requirement for me to have rear mud guards on my trike?

You can pass an MOT without guards, but they're required on the road, (the MOT only checks the safety of parts fitted & not their legality). I've built trikes without them & ridden them on her majesty's highways, but if you get pulled for it you can't really complain.
Part of the regulations state:
The wheel guards must be so designed as to protect other road users, as far as possible, against thrown-up stones, mud, ice, snow and water and to reduce for those users the dangers due to contact with the moving wheels.
