Network Rail campaign speeds up
Vanessa Griffiths, CEO, met with Network Rail last week to discuss the planned level crossing closures in East Anglia. Whilst we did not come away from the meeting with a decision from Network Rail to either suspend or slow-down their proposals, we did feel that our concerns were listened to and agreed to meet again to discuss a long-term strategy for level crossings.

Of course, we will still be making formal objections to the proposals and this campaign is far from over. If these closures go ahead, this will be one of the biggest changes to the rights of way network in a generation and we understand that there are plans to roll-out crossing closures across the country. Help us keep the pressure on by signing our petition.

Can you conquer Ceredigion?
Ramblers Cymru invites walkers of all ages and abilities to complete one of four very different challenging routes as part of this year’s Big Welsh Walk-Hinterland Challenge which takes place on 6 May.

Based in the legendary community of Devil’s Bridge, Ceredigion, you’ll have the opportunity to visit a mythical landscape that includes forest tracks, a glaciated valley floor and gorges and reach to the heights of Cambrian Mountains.

The routes range from 2 to 15 miles including a Woodland Walk, and those who sign up will benefit from a range of discounted deals from local tourism businesses.

Trossachs camping guidance
We’ve published new guidance on what Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park’s new camping byelaws mean for responsible campers. The controversial changes come into force on 1 March, banning informal camping at many of the park’s most popular camping sites between March and September each year.

We campaigned against the park’s camping strategy, and remain concerned that it may fail to provide enough pitches to cope with demand, leading to fewer people enjoying the great outdoors. Campers are banned from pitching tents beside many of the park’s most beautiful lochs without buying a permit, but they still have the right to pitch their tents in many other areas.

How to plan a route
With a wealth of stunning places to walk across Britain, deciding where to go is probably the biggest challenge

Start by asking yourself what sort of landscape you like best. Getting away from the stress and strain of city living into wild open country is a necessity for some. Others love nothing more than meandering around city streets, soaking up the sights and sounds of a busy metropolis.
