Dataset containing the public rights of way of Bradford

The council of Bradford provide four web pages where you can download details of their paths:
Definitive paths in the Former County Borough Area of Bradford
Definitive paths in Outer Bradford
Non-definitive paths in the Former County Borough Area of Bradford
Non-definitive paths in Outer Bradford
For example, you can download the data as ESRI shape files. The appropriate URLs to do this are:
ESRI shape file for the Definitive paths in the Former County Borough Area of Bradford
ESRI shape file for the Definitive paths in Outer Bradford
ESRI shape file for the Non-definitive paths in the Former County Borough Area of Bradford
ESRI shape file for the Non-definitive paths in Outer Bradford
The Council also provides information about their paths on their online map. It may be that their map uses more up-to-date information.

Note: the council is not only providing details about their definitive paths,  i.e., their public rights of ways, but also about other non-definitive paths.

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.

The Access constraints section of each of the four following web pages says that the data is licensed on terms equivalent to the Ordnance Survey Opendata Licence:
Definitive paths in the Former County Borough Area of Bradford
Definitive paths in Outer Bradford
Non-definitive paths in the Former County Borough Area of Bradford
Non-definitive paths in Outer Bradford
When I e-mailed the Ordnance Survey about the councils that had, during the last few years, successfully obtained an exemption from the Public Sector Mapping Agreement and released their data under terms equivalent to the Ordnance Survey OpenData Licence, they replied All data exempted by Ordnance Survey is now covered by the Open Government Licence (OGL), which superseded its own OS OpenData licence in April 2015. So it's possible for you to use this data provided you say that it is public sector information released by the council of Bradford under the Open Government Licence 3.0.

This web site also provides data about the rights of way of Bradford in KML format and in GeoJSON format.
