What are the different rights of way?

Rights of way fall into one of four categories:

  • Yellow markers - public footpaths. For pedestrians only
  • Blue markers - public bridleway. For pedestrians, horse riders and cyclists
  • Purple markers - restricted byway. For pedestrians, horse riders, cyclists and horse-drawn vehicles
  • Red markers - public byway. For pedestrians, horse riders, cyclists and horse-drawn or motorised vehicles

Something missing?

Not all public paths are recorded on the definitive map. This does not mean that a path is not open to the public.

You can apply to register a path on the definitive map. You can also request a change to a recorded path.
