The Work of the Ramblers
The Ramblers was founded on 1st January 1935
The Ramblers is Britain's biggest charity working to promote walking and to improve
conditions for all walkers. With 139,000 members in England, Scotland and Wales,
we've been working for walkers for more than 75 years.
Through the Ramblers national organisation and its network of dedicated volunteers
and staff, we support all who walk, from beginners to experienced enthusiasts, family
groups to solitary strollers and the very young to the young at heart.
We are dedicated to:
safeguarding Britain's unique network of public paths - all too often, they are
illegally blocked, obstructed and overgrown. We work with local authorities to make
them a pleasure to walk on.
providing information to help you plan your walk and enjoy it in safety and comfort.
increasing access for walkers - our work is helping to establish statutory rights
of access to the outdoors.
protecting the countryside and green spaces from unsightly and polluting developments
so that walkers can enjoy their tranquility and beauty.
educating the public about their rights and responsibilities and the health and environmental
benefits of walking so that everyone can enjoy our wonderful heritage.
