Submit your lost rights of way

There are at least 10,000 miles of lost rights of way across England and Wales. These public rights of way have been created by use over centuries and must be recorded so they can be used and enjoyed by generations to come. If they are not recorded by 1 January 2026, they will be lost for ever. If you have not already done so, download our Guide to finding lost rights of way and join the fight to save these historic paths.

The Ramblers are developing a simple system to map these lost rights of way and, for the first time, create a national picture of where these important paths are. This system will be launched later in 2019 but, in the meantime, you can let us know if you have found a potential lost right of way using the form below. We may in touch for more information or if we have any questions.
