Public Rights of Way

A right of way gives users a right to pass and repass along that route only and to deviate around any obstruction they may come across. Any other use on private land may be trespass unless you have the permission of the landowner or some other right to be there. Users of rights of way should follow the Countryside Code.

There are over 300 kilometres of Public Rights of Way in Blaenau Gwent, linking towns and villages to the diverse countryside and landscape of the county. The Council is responsible for the management of this access network, which consists of 300 kilometres of Public Rights of Ways. There are also a number of promoted routes ranging from Community walks to regional trails.
