We work locally to unblock, create and save hundreds of paths that people enjoy throughout England and Wales.
Since October 2010 we’ve been recording these successes on the mapping system we use to help maintain rights of way and thanks to this we’ve produced an interactive map where you can find out more about them.
The successes fall into four categories:
You can search for successes in your local area using the map. Simply zoom in and click on the points to see details of the success on the map below.
Please note that the map below has not been updated with path successes since mid-November 2017. This is because the map no longer gives as full or as clear a picture as we would like of the vital work our volunteers do to keep paths accessible nor does it ‘talk’ to our other mapping systems. We are now developing a new mapping platform that will bring all these systems together so that, for example, the reported stile from a Pathwatch report can be tracked through to its replacement by a path maintenance team. The new platform should also enhance the way we share data with local authorities, and enable us to recognise and celebrate our volunteers’ achievements more effectively.

Did you know we have over 140 active volunteer path maintenance teams across England, Scotland and Wales keeping paths clear and accessible?
Our volunteers work tirelessly in partnership with local authorities to protect, expand, maintain and improve the path network for the benefit of all walkers.
If you're a Ramblers member or volunteer and have achieved a path success, make sure you tell us about it so we can celebrate even more successes.
If you encounter a path or access problem when out walking don't forget to tell us about it using our online form.
If you're a Ramblers volunteer and would like to add a recent path success to this map then please tell us about it.
