Rights of Way in England and Wales
We're fighting to maintain and expand public rights of way in England and Wales
We want everyone to be able to enjoy England and Wales’s world-renowned path network.
We are protecting walkers’ rights on the path network as the increased popularity of cycling leads to a growing number of shared use routes.
Spending time outdoors in nature should be easy, accessible and enjoyable for all. But our paths, tracks and trails are not always accessible to everyone.
The use of motor vehicles on paths can also spoil the enjoyment of the countryside for walkers. We’d like to see better protection for paths.
How our network of public rights of way came to be and why it is so important we protect these ancient routes.
