Chinley Buxworth & Brownside Parish Council has a Rights of Way Maintenance agreement covering some of the local network of rights of way throughout the parish.

This covers:

  • Control of surface vegetation (cutting back undergrowth)
  • Minor surfacing and drainage (e.g. Stoning up short stretches of muddy path or clearing out ditches)
  • Providing waymarking arrows to indicate the line of a path

Many of the Rights of Way in Chinley Buxworth & Brownside Parish are in the Peak District National Park and more information can also be found on their website - Peak District National Park Authority .
