A highway and a public right of way mean the same thing; they are both a "way" over which the public have a right to pass and repass at all times of the day and night. The term highway includes all carriageways (roads), streets, footways (pavements), footpaths, bridleways and byways. A highway may also include the adjacent verges.

This site shows which highways are adopted. If a highway is adopted it means its maintained and repaired by Nottingham City Council. It also shows public rights of way (footpaths, bridleways and byways) both adopted and un-adopted which are recorded on the Definitive Map and Statement. This is the legal record of public rights of way in Nottingham at the time the Map and Statement were last updated (the "relevant date").
