Byways are one of four different rights of way for getting out and about in the countryside.
There are two different types of byway:
- a byway open to all traffic (BOTAT) - these are marked with a red arrow and are open to all traffic
- restricted byways - these are marked with a plum coloured arrow and are open to walkers, cyclists, horse riders and horse-drawn carriages. They are not open to motorised vehicles
