Copies of maps detailing Leicestershire’s public footpaths, bridleways and byways are now 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.
Leicestershire County Council has made reference copies of the map available in Loughborough, Coalville, Hinckley, Market Harborough, Melton, Blaby and Oadby Libraries.
Lesley Pendleton, Leicestershire County Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said: “This map is really comprehensive and is useful for walkers and riders who are interested in finding their local paths.
“We hope people will take a look and be inspired to explore some of Leicestershire’s wonderful countryside.”
The map comprises 116 large sheets which will be updated periodically to reflect any changes made to the paths.
It is anticipated than an online version of the map will be available on the county council’s website in the New Year.
Photocopies of the map can be made – normal library photocopying charges apply.
