The Big Pathwatch survey was only possible because of the extraordinary effort and dedication of thousands of walkers like you.

Because you care about our open spaces and were prepared to walk in all weathers and tell us what you found, we can keep improving as guardians of the footpath network, which is so valuable to us all. For a pdf copy of the report, click here.

In the North East, a quarter of all features related to finding your way and almost 80% of these were missing signs. Of all the National Parks, Northumberland has the highest proportion of attractive views. One-tenth of the network is in serious disrepair.
