If you are at the early stages of planning to build or improve a path then this guide will help you to estimate many of the costs involved; something that is essential when setting budgets or seeking funding.

First published in 2014 and updated March 2023, this handy guide is divided into sections; allowing you to calculate the cost of different types of work such as clearing vegetation from a path route, constructing a path with typical surfacing materials, erecting signage, building boardwalks or installing a gate.

This revised edition has reviewed and updated all prices whilst also including additional estimates for site welfare and storage facilities and a new section on costs that might be incurred in maintaining your path.
