Bridleways & Public Rights of Ways

public footpath sign

The Essex 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 Rights of Way Team are responsible for maintaining the legal integrity of the Map.

A Public Right of Way comes under Essex County Council who should be contacted in cases of problems.

The Essex PROW website can be used to find a lot more information, including suggested long and short walks in Essex
