1. You don't need to go there.
2. You need not go there.
3. You don't have to go there.
4. You have not to go there.
They are the same in meaning. However, #4 is not used frequently, right? In British English, is #4 used these days? Where is #4 used nowadays?

    They all mean the same thing. I don't know if #4 is used anywhere, but may be in parts of the United Kingdom. I'm American, so don't know. It would not be used here.
