Enjoy and Protect Your Rights of Way

The Cumbria Bridleways Society would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone who visits this site whether an existing member or someone interested in finding out more about us. We hope you will find the site informative and interesting and will visit again.

Established in 1979 the Cumbria Bridleways Society works to keep our network of paths open so all users can continue to enjoy the rich historic routes that cross our county alongside the newer routes that enhance the existing ones.

Whether you enjoy riding, walking, cycling or carriage driving we work with the National Park Authority, District Councils and other relevant authorities to benefit all users. In the early years there were many obstructions but now a large part of our work is consultations about definitive map changes.

If you have a problem with a route please contact us. You might like to consider joining our network of field officers. Or you may like to attend one of our social events. If you have a query and don't find the answer on this site please contact us.       

See our Noticeboard for future events
