Confirmed Map Changes

The Explorer series of maps from the Ordnance Survey carries rights of way information that is up to date when the map is published. Explorer 279 covers the majority of the Doncaster area and was last published in 2015

The Rights of Way section receives and processes a slow but steady stream of requests to change the network and over time a number of these will pass through the rigorous legal requirements and become confirmed changes, thus making the Ordnance Survey maps slightly out of date. Changes may include new paths, diversions of existing paths or path deletions.  Public rights of way and other leisure routes that are available to the public are shown on the Doncaster Walking Map.  Please note that the Doncaster Walking Map is not the legal record.

The following list and plans below show the confirmed rights of way changes since 2015


Public Footpath Number 5 Fenwick Diversion (east side of railway crossing)
