Jack Cornish is head of paths at the Ramblers, leading the Ramblers work to protect, expand and improve our path network. Jack joined the Ramblers in 2017, having recently completed a 1,550 mile walk all the way across Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Jack is the author of a book called The Lost Paths, a personal journey and exploration of the deep history of English and Welsh paths and how this millennia-old network was created, has evolved, and been transformed. An important part of Jack’s focus at the Ramblers has been the flagship Don’t Lose Your Way project which identified over 49,000 miles of paths that could be lost forever because they are not legally recorded as public rights of way. Jack has regularly appeared in the media including the BBC, Country Living magazine and The Guardian.
Jack lives in southeast London, from where he sets out to complete another mission, a potential futile attempt to walk all the streets, squares and paths of the capital city.
