The Definitive Map is the legal record of public rights of way and is prepared by Wirral Council as the surveying authority. A 'way' shown on the map is divided into three categories:

  • Footpath
  • Bridleway
  • Byway

The Definitive Statement provides a description of every ‘way’ recorded.

The Definitive Map shows the Wirral region broken down into 13 numbered areas.
