Public Rights of Way
Criss-crossing the parishes of Clarborough & Welham, Hayton and Clayworth is an extensive network of Public Rights of Way.
This network is shown on the attached maps with numbers for identification. Each parish has its own unique set of identification numbers.
There are footpaths, bridleways and byways, all having different uses. The designations are shown on the maps and are described as follows:

Footpaths
Only walkers or pedestrians with prams are allowed to use the footpaths.
In some cases eg the landowner, Canal and River Trust, has agreed that cyclists may use the Chesterfield canal towpath.
Cyclist must always give way to pedestrians and announce their presence if approaching from the rear and also dismount when passing pedestrians.

Bridleways
Walkers, cyclists and horses may use these Public Rights of Way.

Byways sometimes designated BOAT [Byway Open to All Traffic]
These may be used by pedestrians, cyclists, horses [and carriages] mechanically propelled vehicles if correctly taxed, insured and the driver has the appropriate licence.

Historically, many Public Rights of Way are used for access to a place of work e.g. farmersí fields whatever their designation.

Please abide by the Country Code when walking, cycling or driving along the Public Rights of Way. Most of the network crosses private land and users should not stray from the designated line of the footpath, bridleway or byway.

The network is maintained by Nottinghamshire County Council.
