The establishment of new rights of way in the Lake District has been commended by Ramblers.

According to Anastasia French, spokeswoman for the group, this will enable visitors to the area to be confident about where they can go walking, BBC News reports.

As a result, more novice ramblers might be encouraged to invest in new walking accessories and check out some of the Lake District's best places to take a hike.

"This records it as a public right of way and provides the protection needed to keep these paths open for the public to enjoy," Ms French commented.

She added that she is hoping to see more parts of the national park classed in this way in the near future.

The Lake District National Park Authority and the National Trust this week agreed that 11 paths will gain this status, totalling 6.3 miles in length. Three other paths will become bridleways totalling 3.12 miles and two other new bridleways will be created, with a combined length of 0.48 miles.
