As Ramblers’ Campaigns Officer, it’s inspiring to be a part of such a grass-roots driven organisation with so many local campaigners.

When I was 5 my dad asked me if I wanted a Barbie doll or an atlas. I chose the atlas and there began my love of exploring the world. The best way to explore and to truly understand the world is on foot – it enhances your senses like no other method of travel, plus it’s easy and cheap.

Walking Class Hero

** Winner of a UK Blog Award 2014 ** Most of what I know about Britain I’ve learnt through my feet, walking through its cities, towns and countryside. I’m particularly interested in people, culture and history when I blog, but rights of way, the best gear to wear and map references make appearances too.

Thanks in large part to the Ramblers, the opportunities available for different walks are as diverse as the reasons there are for walking. I’ll be using this blog to update you on how we plan to extend to everyone the fun, friendship and health benefits that come from walking.

I lived abroad for 15 years but have barely left Scotland since I arrived in Edinburgh in 2001. There’s just so much to explore and it’s a fantastic country if you like the outdoors.

Quaint town streets, amazing open landscapes and the public’s rights of way all need protection, and it’s a delight to have a small hand in the work of the Ramblers’ 70 years-worth of that.

At the age of five I was allowed to look through my father’s binoculars for the first time and I happened to point them at the stars. This started me off on my journey of discovery of the night sky and all things relating to it.

I’ve been interested in wildlife, and the environment we share, all my life. This interest increased when I discovered photography and this in turn led to a career as a photographer and latterly a writer.

Ed Wilson and a young hiker

Ed Wilson

I’ve always loved walking, from a short walk in the wilds of Oxshot Heath with my family or taking in the beauty of Dartmoor with my best mate. Ever since I climbed Bellever Tor with my Dad aged 5 I’ve been hooked.

Paul began watching birds seriously from the age of twelve, when he started taking notes. The early years were spent around Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire, where as a teenager he trained to ring birds, was a volunteer warden and ran a nest box study.

Sarah Gardner

My parents used to have to drag me and my siblings out walking. We'd have to be enticed by "rocket juice" (aka cherryade) and elaborate stories about bandits chasing us, in order to keep us going...

Mark Rowe

I grew up in the wilds of the Hertfordshire/ M25 border and to my parents' disbelief always preferred walking, wildlife and woods to football.
