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!
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.
Being able to walk in nature-filled green spaces makes people happier and healthier. But access to green space is not equal. We need urgent action to bring the benefits of walking in nature to everyone.
By making a donation you can help us continue to campaign on behalf of walkers.
