Measham Parish Council are responsible for the maintenance of the footpath between Orchard Way and Queen Street. Leicestershire County Council is the responsible authority for the footpaths. To view the map go to

The Ramblers association provides useful guidance on this:

The definitive map is the official record of the public's rights of way in an area. Just like the deeds to a house prove who the owner is, the definitive map proves that the public has a right to use the paths which are shown on it.
