Campaign with us

As a supporter of the Ramblers, you can be a champion of walking. Together, we’ve already achieved so much: the creation of National Parks and long-distance footpaths such as the Pennine Way; open access to over a million hectares of English and Welsh countryside and mountains; unhindered access to open countryside in Scotland and the creation of the England and Wales Coast Paths. Let’s see what else we can achieve!

Find. Map. Save.

Don't Lose Your Way

1 January 2026 is the cut-off date for adding historic paths to definitive maps. Any path which came into existence before 1949 and not claimed by 2026 will be lost. Forever.

The Future Of Public Access

The future of public access

The access rights we enjoy today are founded on laws and policy that have developed over decades. We want to build on these strong foundations to ensure that more people can get outdoors and benefit from the experience. Find out more about current issues and opportunities that could help enhance access to the outdoors and engagement with the natural environment.

Our path network

Ramblers volunteers are at the heart of protecting and enhancing the path network, and we're celebrating everything they do to give us the opportunity to access nature on our doorstep.

Our manifesto for the next government

We face a climate emergency, catastrophic nature loss, rising obesity levels, a mental health crisis and widening health inequalities. Enabling more people to walk and be in contact with nature can help tackle these challenges.

Keep on Rambling

This year is the 70th anniversary of the 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act, legislation that led to the creation of National Parks, National Trails, AONBs, the definitive map in both England and Wales, and National Nature Reserves across Great Britain.

Walking neighbourhoods

We’re calling on local authorities to improve walking infrastructure and to make walking in towns and cities the easy choice.

Designated landscapes

Last year, the government announced an independent review of England’s protected landscapes. The review is exploring ‘how these iconic landscapes meet our needs in the 21st century’.
