Datasets containing details about rights of way

The 101 authorities that are listed in the table below have released under licence the data about their rights of way.

Many authorities originally released their data under terms equivalent to the Ordnance Survey Opendata Licence. In April 2015, the Ordnance Survey adopted the Open Government Licence. Here's a link to more details about the change in OS licensing.

An authority's Definitive Map is the authoritative source of their rights of way. The details of the public rights of way network contained in an authority's data are for information only, and are an interpretation of the Definitive Map, not the Definitive Map itself, and should not be relied on for determining the position or alignment of any public right of way. For legal purposes, an authority's data does not replace their Definitive Map. And changes may have been made to the Definitive Map that are not included in their data. The authority's data contains Ordnance Survey data © Crown copyright and database right 2013. Attempting to view this data with more detail than 1:10000 may produce an inaccurate rendering of the route of a public right of way.
