Public rights of way

We, as highway authority for the area, aim to ensure the borough's public rights of way network is properly maintained, recorded on the definitive map and promoted. We work with:

  • local communities
  • users
  • landowners
  • farming interests

We aim to facilitate the use and enjoyment of the entire network by all sections of the population.

There is in excess of 100 miles (160 km) of legally recorded public rights of way in the borough, for which we are responsible.

Our attractive landscape means there are numerous excellent walks throughout the borough.

You can also pick up printed leaflets from our libraries and ranger visitor centres at Taylor Park, Sankey Valley and Mesnes Park.
