How to use the Open Access Definitive map
The maps stored here are the original draft
provisional and conclusive (definitive) maps that were issued when
CCW went through the consultation process as a result of the
Countryside and Rights Of Way Act 2000.
Using the map
These maps are all static image maps, which means that you can’t
