Sending photos

Finding a footpath number

To find a footpath using Cornwall Council's mapping service:

  • Drag and zoom into the area of the map where the issue is (or search for a place name).
  • Click "Layers" and then select "Public Rights of Way" (zoom in more if it appears greyed-out).
  • Click on a footpath, you should get a box pop up with "Parish/path no./link no."
