People in Worcestershire are being encouraged to blow away the festive cobwebs and put their best foot forward in 2019.

Worcestershire County Council looks after 4,600km of Public Rights of Way across the whole of the county.

These include footpaths, bridleways and byways. A number of volunteers also help to look after Worcestershire's vast network of Public Rights of Way.

Councillor Alan Amos, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: "Miles and miles of paths and bridleways are looked after by our brilliant teams so people can enjoy walking and cycling along them.

“We've got plenty of wonderful countryside here in Worcestershire for people to explore in 2019. So get out in 2019 and enjoy what our county has to offer."

The Public Rights of Way teams also support 35 circular routes and long distance trails, including the Worcestershire Way. These vary from a few miles to around 40 miles. To find out more about these routes go to: http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/info/20239/walks_and_rides

Also, there is a full interactive map of Worcestershire's Public Rights of Way available at https://gis.worcestershire.gov.uk/website/Countryside/

The County Council is also responsible for a number of parks including the Worcester Woods Country Park, Waseley Hills Country Park, Rubery and St Wulstan's Nature Reserve, Malvern.
