Public rights of way


Public footpaths are public rights of way on foot.


Public bridleways are public rights of way on foot, or leading or riding a beast of burden (e.g. a horse). Cyclists may also use bridleways, but must give way to riders and pedestrians.


Public byways open to all traffic are public rights of way for all types of traffic but are mainly used by pedestrians, horse riders and cyclists and may not be suitable for all types of motorised vehicle.
