Footpaths and bridleways
Wyre's countryside provides many opportunities for walking, cycling and horseriding and seeing some of the many plants and animals the area supports.
Footpaths are for use on foot only, while on bridleways you can walk, cycle or ride a horse. They are often waymarked to prevent you losing your way and to avoid tresspass onto private land.
The public paths in Wyre fall into two geographical areas, the area known as the urban core west of the Wyre estuary and the area known as the rural area that lies east of the estuary.
Broadly speaking the path network is managed and maintained by Wyre Council in the urban core and by Lancashire County Council in the rural area.
Maintenance by these authorities normally extends to the surface of the path, the signposting and the construction and care of bridges. Landowners and farmers are usually responsible for removal of overhanging vegetation and the erection of stiles and gates.
Details of public rights of way can be viewed on the Lancashire County Council website together with any relevant orders in place.
