New Rights of Way Maps on View at Libraries

Copies of maps detailing Leicestershire’s public footpaths, bridleways and byways are available to view in main libraries.

The Definitive Map is the official record of the existence, status and position of all of the county’s current public rights of ways and it is held at County Hall, Glenfield.

Leicestershire County Council has made reference copies of the map available in Loughborough, Coalville, Hinckley, Market Harborough, Melton, Blaby and Oadby Libraries.

The map comprises 116 large sheets which will be updated periodically to reflect any changes made to the paths.

It is anticipated that an online version of the map will be available on the county council’s website in 2013.

Photocopies of the map can be made at normal library photocopying rates.
