Not only have I survived being outdoors in December in the UK, I’ve relished every ramble during this allegedly Spartan time of the year.

The freedom to roam offers the opportunity to get out, explore and connect with nature. We campaigned for decades for this right across some of our wildest landscapes as part of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act. As we reflect 20 years later, we’ve asked Stuart Maconie and others what the freedom to roam has meant to them.
