Rights of Way (Public Paths)

You can walk on all public rights of way. Some are also open to horse riders, cyclists or motorists.

Your Rights

The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 gave people more freedom to walk on open countryside. This applies to open access land, which has been opened to the public for walking.

Walking with Dogs

You are welcome to take your dog on any right of way route but they must be on a lead or under close control. It is an offence to allow a dog to run free in a field where there are sheep. A farmer has the right to shoot a dog that is attacking or chasing livestock. You must clean up after your dog or you may be liable for a fine.

Report Problems

Many paths go across or around fields that contain crops or have been ploughed and may be uneven or muddy. Public paths should be clear from obstruction and fences, gates and stiles must be in good condition, easy to open and unlocked.
