Ramblers Call for Core Paths to be shown on OS Maps

Signpost

Signpost

Two of the main deterrents to using rights of way and core paths are lack of signage and blockages to the footpaths themselves. Having created a definitive list of core paths I was disappointed to find that there is no statutory requirement to have any kind of signposting indicating the existence of the paths themselves. They say if you build it, they will come, but if you build it and don’t tell anyone, will they even know?

Ramblers (Scotland) are campaigning for core paths to be added to future editions of Ordnance Survey mapping, and this would be a great way of informing people using maps that there are paths and routes which are legally protected and which they have a right to use unimpeded.
