Plymouth has numerous

Habitats within these sites include woodland, grassland, hedgerows, cliffs, quarries, marshes, lakes, estuaries and marine habitats. Not all of these sites are accessible to the public for a variety of reasons.

Public Rights of Way (PROW) are important as they offer a more sustainable and healthier way to enjoy Plymouth. PROW allow people to replace the use of cars and public transport and take pleasure in Plymouth using alternatives methods, such as walking and cycling.
