Bolton Public Rights of Way

'Details of public rights of way in Bolton are kept in our Definitive Map and Statement. The "map" shows the location of the footpaths, bridleways and restricted byways that we look after. Accompanying the map is the "statement": this is a narrative description of the routes on the map. Each route is a unique highway and as such has its own reference. Alongside each reference are details of the location, length, width and surface type of the path and a general description of its route with respect to local landmarks such as farms. Together these documents form a legal record, proving the existence of public rights of way.'

Type of Website

'The Definitive Map and Statement is held by the Council's Public Rights of Way Team ... The map and statement can be viewed during normal office hours (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday). Please make an appointment before visiting the office. You can also access a copy of the Definitive Map on the My Maps section of this website in the Transport and Streets Category.'
