A public footpath/bridleway is a highway, they are maintained by the
local highway authority. Obstructing any highway is an offence, whether
it be a public footpath or motorway. 

The term highway is often misused to imply a motorway/expressway,
however that is not the UK (and therefore OSM) definition of a highway.
