Parish Footpaths & Walks
Oakford Parish has ten miles of public footpaths, including about one and a half miles of bridleway. The Parish belongs to a voluntary scheme administered by Devon County Council called the Parish Paths Partnership (P3), which is an agreement between the Parish Council and Devon County Council with the aim of improving the condition of local rights of way and keeping them open and used properly. Our representatives - the Footpath Co-ordinators - are Tony and Maggie Northcott.
Our Footpath Co-ordinators:
- Liaise with Devon County Council Public Rights of Way Department
- Carry out annual inspections and provide a report to DCC
- Apply for grants to fund specific improvement projects and appoint contractors to carry out the work
- Carry out small maintenance tasks, with local volunteers where appropriate
- Attend annual P3 workshops
- Administer grant funds
Recreational walking guides for exploring the footpaths around the Oakford area are available at The Red Lion Hotel or online here.
