In relation to the Public Rights of Way service, all walks information (walks, nature trails and tree trails) is available to download in Adobe pdf format on the Walking in Derby page of council’s website. There are also links to walks and nature trails information, and accessible leisure routes, in adjoining Derbyshire authorities.

Derby City’s Rights of Way Improvement Plan has specific actions aimed at increasing the opportunities for disabled people to use paths and areas of open space. One future action is to specifically create more leisure routes accessible by wheelchair users. ROW phone number is 01332 640809.
A new wheelchair friendly walk is due to be launched in May 2011 – The Heatherton Circular Walk in the Littleover area of Derby.
The Derby Walks folder currently contains seven walks, which detail the terrain encountered on each of the walks. The folder which the leaflets are contained in, details the type of surface and slope which people will encounter on the walk, denoted by the red circle and white lettering on the front cover of the leaflet.
All leaflets produced by the Council can be requested through the Tourist Information Centre. This can be by phone, minicom or email. Derby Tourist Information Centre: 01332 643411
