Dataset containing the public rights of way of Wakefield

The council of Wakefield have provided me with MapInfo files that contain the details of their public rights of way. These files seem to have been created on 8th July 2013. The Council provides information about public rights of way on its online map. It may be that their map uses more up-to-date information.

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 MapInfo files are released with this variant of the Open Government Licence. So it's possible for other people to use their data.

Please e-mail me if you see a web page where the authority of Wakefield allows you to download the MapInfo files.

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