If you are looking for routes in and around town, we have cooperated in the creation of the walking maps for Newbury, Thatcham, Theale & Calcot and Tilehurst & Purley on Thames published by West Berkshire Council.
They are downloadable as pdf images from the Council's website.
They are also available free in printed form from the West Berkshire Tourist Information Centre or the Council's offices, or by telephoning the Council's Local Transport Policy team on 01635 519505.
A Public Footpath should only be used by walkers and is marked with a YELLOW arrow.
A Public Bridleway should be used for riding or leading a horse and pedal cycling, as well as for walking. Public Bridleways are usually signed with a BLUE arrow.
A Restricted Byway may be used as a bridleway, but horse drawn vehicles are also allowed.
A Byway open to all traffic should be used as a restricted byway, but motor vehicles are also allowed.
If you discover an obstruction or a footpath problem you should contact:
Our Footpath Secretaries, Neal Pike and Doug Larsen
