What are Rights of Way?

What are Rights of Way?

A right of way is a path that anyone has the legal right to use on foot, and sometimes using other modes of transport.

• Public footpaths are open only to walkers


• Public bridleways are open to walkers, horse-riders and pedal cyclists


• Restricted byways are open to walkers, horse-riders, and drivers/riders of non-mechanically propelled vehicles (such as horse-drawn carriages and pedal cycles).


• Byways Open to All Traffic (BOATs) are open to all classes of traffic including motor vehicles, though they may not be maintained to the same standard as ordinary roads.

 

Rights of Way are shown on Ordnance Survey maps, typically Land Ranger(Scale 1: 50,000) and Explorer Scale 1:25000).

However, it could be that the map is out of date and the only proof of the the legality of the rights of way information is on the definitive map held by the County Council.
