My Location

This uses your device's location feature to place a marker on the map where you are.

  1. Position: shows the centre of your position on the map.
    • For the website to be able to access your location, you will often need to accept a permissions dialogue from your browser asking for your consent.
    • If you are using a device without any way of detecting your actual location (e.g. a laptop or desktop) the browser will only be able to roughly estimate your location.
  2. Compass: the direction you are facing.
  3. Accuracy: shows the reported 'accuracy' of the position. This means your device is currently unable to be more specific and you may be located anywhere within the outer circle and not necessarily directly in the centre.

Once you move the map such that your position is not longer visible, the following features will appear:

  1. Bearing: the direction you would travel to get from the centre of the map to your current physical position.

Unfortunately at this time we do not produce a mobile application, the website is however designed to work well on a mobile device and has features such as location and orientation which work correctly in the browser.

The base map layer we use is from OpenStreetMap, a "collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world". A small subset of the public rights of way have been added by their users, and these show up as dashed lines.

A full OpenStreetMap key is available here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/key

The base map layer we use is from OpenStreetMap, this is then overlaid with the official council right of way data shown as solid red/blue/magenta/green lines.

Due to discrepancies / inaccuracies of the data, both sets of lines may not occur in identical locations and can both be displayed, often very close to each other.

Please first ensure that you have checked that the path does not appear on your council's online interactive right of way map (if they publish one). Most links can be found from the search page by clicking on your council area and then using the links at the bottom of the page.

Next, please contact us using the form below, ideally providing a postcode of the problem area. We will then reply and ask for you to submit a screenshot.

The faint dotted red lines come from the OpenStreetMap project: https://www.openstreetmap.org which is the base map layer we use and is not something we have any control over or affiliation with.

The OpenStreetMap project is however a publicly editable map so you may be able to remove these paths yourself using the tools available on their website.

In our map key only the solid lines are listed as public right of ways; we specifically have a warning to only follow signposted paths and to be careful with the OpenStreetMap lines as many of them are not public.

All the map features apart from the right of way lines come from the OpenStreetMap project: https://www.openstreetmap.org which is the base map layer we use and is not something we have any control over or affiliation with.

The OpenStreetMap project is however a publicly editable map so you may be able to edit these features yourself using the tools available on their website.

All feedback (good or bad) is appreciated. Please use the form below to contact us.

If you have found a physical problem with a right of way you will need to report it to your local authority. You can report problems such as:

  • Overgrown plants or weeds.
  • Footpath or bridleway needing repair.
  • Obstructions on the rights of way such as vehicles, or dead animals.
  • Damaged bridge.
  • Broken gates.

Most local authorities will have a form you can fill in on their website. This can usually be found by going to the search page, selecting your county and then there will be links at the bottom for the local authorities right of way pages.

Unfortunately we are unable to help with such enquiries.
