Rights of way


What's over 3,000 miles long but countywide and free to use? The answer is Derbyshire's Rights of Way Network, made up of rights of way, bridleways and byways.

We are legally obliged to protect and assert your rights to use the Rights of Way Network and to update the Definitive Map and Statement (the legal record of rights of way for the county).

We deal with disputed routes, obstructions to paths, signing paths from roads, path maintenance, path structures (bridges, gates and stiles) and promoting the use of the network.

If you have an enquiry about a promoted route or you would like to report a problem please contact Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190 or use our online reporting form
