Rights of Way

There are numerous rights of way in the parish that connect Semington with other villages and our nearby towns.  Many of these are very old networks that used to be significant means of travelling from place to place.  These days they are mostly used for recreation and are just as important.

The village has a rights of way group that is dedicated to keeping these routes open and safe, working with the Ramblers and Wiltshire Council to repair any damage.  The parish council reviews rights of way issues at every meeting.

If you’d like to join the group, or have an issue to report such as a dangerous stile or blocked path, please contact us here.

The Wiltshire Council website has an extensive range of information regarding rights of way for both users and land owners.

It also provides access to an interactive mapping tool that can be used to explore the footpaths and bridleways in the county.  The paths around Semington can be viewed here
