Paths to Community – Monmouthshire

Creating volunteer maintenance groups to improve Monmouthshire’s path network


Creating a sustainable path network

The Paths to Community project focuses on developing ways to make the public rights of way network more sustainable in the long term and will contribute towards social justice, wellbeing, and resilient community targets in Monmouthshire.

The communities being targeted for path improvements and the development of a long-term path maintenance volunteer team are Monmouth, Usk, and Magor & Undy.


Supporting volunteers

The project enables Monlife Countryside Access staff to work alongside Ramblers Cymru with community volunteer groups, providing them with materials, training and information, while making physical improvements to signage and the accessibility of routes.

By being on the ground, volunteers can enjoy the benefits of the outdoors, but will also be helping to resolve issues to maintain and open Public Right of Way access across communities. 


Get involved

Everyone has rights and responsibilities in the countryside and this project is open to anyone who wants to be involved.

You can help enable access to green spaces the appreciation of nature and the environment within the community alongside promoting health and wellbeing through finding the wild places that are closer than you think.

So, if you enjoy being outside and would like to develop practical skills in the outdoors to improve local paths in Monmouth, Usk or Magor & Undy, then we would like to hear from you.
