Public rights of way
The public paths in Wyre fall into two geographical areas, the area known as the urban core, lying west of the Wyre Estuary and the area known as the rural area, lying east of the estuary.
The urban core is managed and maintained by Wyre Council and contains the communities of Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Thornton and Poulton-le-Fylde.
The rural area is managed and maintained by Lancashire County Council and contains the communities of Preesall and Knott End, Stalmine, Hambleton, Pilling, Out Rawcliffe, Great Eccleston, Inskip, Garstang, Bilsborrow and Myerscough, St Michaels, Catterall, Claughton-on-Brock, Bleasdale, Forton, Cabus and Scorton.
Report a problem on a footpath
If you encounter any problems with a route:
- For the urban core please report it to Wyre Council.
- For the rural area please contact Lancashire County Council
Please be as specific as possible, giving details of:
- exact location, including grid reference if possible
- the walk which you were following and the information you were using, such as the map and leaflet
- the date of the walk and the weather conditions
- the nature of the problem
Maintenance 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.
Important notice - footpath closure
From the 6th January 2020 for 6 months or until works are complete, Nan's Nook footbridge over the M6 will be closed. The closure order and associated map with an alternative route can be found here
