Don't Lose Your Way – please help preserve your area 

We have until January 2026 to save our historic rights of way. An estimated 10,000 miles of paths across England and Wales do not currently appear on the definitive map of rights of way, and unless they are added by 2026, they could be lost forever.

The Ramblers has launched a resource that splits the country into 1km squares making it easy to compare current and historic maps.

For more information go to and if you have any questions, please email

  • Car pool: Any car pool details should be listed on walk details under Meeting point. If not shown then no formal car share is arranged. Starting point is the walk start point.
  • Printable walk list/table: The most up to date information is always on this website. A printed list is only accurate at the time it’s prepared but if you need a hard copy: 
    • Ensure that the green Our group walks panel on the home page is expanded (if not, click on ‘+’ at the panel top) and then click on More Walks at the panel bottom.
    • Near the top of the new page, select your required date range, ensure that the Group walks tab is enabled, and set Results per Page to (10/20/50) as preferred.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the new page and click on either Print text or Print table, ready to print. For the table version set your printer driver to landscape.
  • Walks difficulty – how easy is a walk
