Don’t Lose Your Way has identified over 49,000 miles of potential lost paths, and a lot of work still needs to be done before any of them can become a right of way. Whilst many of the paths identified may be historical rights of way, they are not currently recorded on the legal map of rights of way (the definitive map) and some may have been legally extinguished in the past 120 years. Until they are recorded, we cannot guarantee that they are public rights of way, and therefore we would not encourage you to go out and walk them.
If I find a lost path does that mean I can go and walk it?
