LINKS TO WEBSITES THAT HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT RIGHTS OF WAY

ESSEX COUNTY COUNCIL DEFINITIVE MAP ON-LINE
This website gives you access to ECC’s interactive map of public rights of way. Click here to view It shows the latest updates to the map and gives path numbers. To view public rights of way on the map, under “map categories” in the left hand panel, click on “assets”, then tick the box against “rights of way”; they will now all show on the map. You can search the map by various methods including postcode and parish name, or just by zooming in to the area you want to look at.
