What is a Definitive Map?
Each highway authority
keeps a Definitive Map and Statement of all public rights of way - the formal
legal record of the existence of footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and
byways open to all traffic. In total it offers more than 137,000 miles of
public footpath, bridleway and byway providing a level of access admired
throughout the world.
