Public rights of way mapping

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.

Our interactive map shows all public rights of way throughout Cornwall.

From 17 January 2018 we have decided to adopt and implement the notation as defined in Schedule 1 of Regulation 3 of 'The Wildlife and Countryside (Definitive Maps and Statements) Regulations 1993' and added to by 'Advice Note No 22' from the Rights of Way Section of The Planning Inspectorate (with regard to the notation for restricted byway), such that:

  • Footpaths – magenta, (purple) solid line
  • Bridleways – green, solid line
  • Byways – brown, solid line
  • Restricted Byways – green, broken line

 You can locate paths by reference number map by selecting the relevant parish/path number in our list of public rights of way

Public Rights of Way interactive mapYou can also find the locations of schools, leisure centres, libraries, household waste recycling centres, salting routes, safety cameras and many other layers throughout Cornwall. You can zoom to a specific area by entering a location i.e. towns and villages, street or postcode, in the search box on the map.
