Footpaths are according to Ordanance Survey Maps.

According to the Ramblers Association -


Your legal right is to "pass and repass along the way". You may stop to rest or admire the view, or to consume refreshments, providing you stay on the path and do not cause an obstruction.

You can also take with you a "natural accompaniment" which includes a pram, pushchair or wheelchair (though you may find the surface of the path is not always suitable), or a dog. However, you should ensure that dogs are under close control. Note that there is no requirement for stiles to be suitable for use by dogs..
