Area name: Northamptonshire

Our areas help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Areas help look after paths and green spaces, open up new places to explore and act as the leading voice on walking matters near you. They also support our local groups to organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness.

The Area consists of 5 Groups, each aiming to promote walking, arrange locally led walks and protect our rights of way. We also organise campaigning events, rallies and promotional events.

Love maps and have some free time to spare?

 Do you think about why you are able to use the footpaths that are available? While footpaths result from years, often centuries of use; making sure they are kept open and well maintained for us and for future generations, requires continued vigilance. A vital part of this work is carried out by our Footpath Committee. We're currently looking for new members of our local Footpath Committee.

The Northamptonshire Footpath Committee is the main official point of contact between walkers and the Council organisations approving new developments and maintaining the rights of way. The continued development of housing and industry in the county together with the financial constraints the exist results in increasing risk of loss of footpaths. Due to these increasing demands on our work and the retirement of a number of long standing committee members we need your help with the work we do. Please contact us through our Chair if you'd like to know more!
