Public rights of way mapping

Customer notice

We are updating our website with a mobile-friendly design. This page will be updated with the new design soon. Thank you for your patience.

Please tell us what you think about our website, we welcome your feedback.

Rights of way are defined routes which you can legally use to cross private land at any time.  The four types of routes shown on the map below are types of rights of way.

You can search by entering the following in the location box:

  • Street
  • Town
  • Village name
  • Postcode

In some cases the coloured lines (Wiltshire Council's mapping layers) will not exactly match the rights of way shown on the Ordnance Survey map underneath. This is because network changes are constantly being made and our mapping is updated more frequently than Ordnance Survey's. The coloured lines take prority over the underlying mapping.

Sometimes it is necessary to temporarily or permanently close rights of way to some or all users, see current closures.

If you see a problem with any right of way, please report it using our online form.

For other routes and areas with public access, see the Where can I go? section.
