Inspection once or twice a year of a Public Right of Way or a network of Public Rights of Way.

If you feel as though 5 year survey work or Promoted Route work may not be for you then why not adopt-a-path? Maybe you have a footpath alongside your property, or have a favourite route you walk regularly? You can adopt one, several or paths in a whole community. If you adopt-a-path you can keep it open and easy to use by carrying out minor maintenance on the path(s), such as cutting back light overgrowth, and reporting any bigger jobs to us. Of course the path(s) will then be given a certain degree of priority on our maintenance list, for as long as resources allow, as you have taken the time to help us.

Areas already benefited from having a Footpath adopter are: Holt, Marchwiel, Overton, Plas Bennion, Brymbo, Llay, Gwersyllt, Coedpoeth and Broughton.

Send us your photos!

Email your favourite digital photos for inclusion on the website. We are always looking for pictures of voluntary work being carried out, before and after pictures, or pictures of you enjoying yourself on Wrexham’s footpaths. Your name will be credited to the pictures and be sure to include where the picture was taken! See the disclaimer. Send to rightsofway@wrexham.gov.uk.
