Rights of Way (footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic)
The Leicestershire Definitive Map (and Statement) are the legal records of all the county's public rights of way (footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic).
The Definitive Map Team are responsible for maintaining the legal integrity of the Map.
There are quite a number of public footpaths/bridleways in/around each of the villages for anyone to walk along and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
Rights of Way comes under Leicestershire County Council who should be contacted in cases of problems. More details are available from them of the local footpaths and rights of way. You can use this link to:
