Thank you for your support this year
As the festive season descends upon us and we reach the end of the year, we’ve been thinking back over the last 12 months. 2016 has been a big year in so many ways and we want to take the time to remember and celebrate some of the things we, the Ramblers, have achieved together in 2016.

From Chistmas day we'll be posting some of our 2016 highlights as part of our 12 days of Christmas.

The Festival of Winter Walks is here
Starting on Saturday, for the next fortnight there are over 1,000 festival walks on offer across England, Scotland and Wales.

We’d love to see you there, so grab your boots and step out to be part of Britain’s biggest winter walking festival. From short city strolls taking in the seasonal lights, to remote rambles through the frosty countryside, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Pathwatch is here!
Our Pathwatch campaign got off to a great start in November, with lots of volunteers taking part in path maintenance on and around Offa’s Dyke. Thanks so much to everyone who came along, despite the autumnal weather! Pathwatch aims to get all rights of way well-maintained by 2020 - they’ll be many other opportunities to get involved over the next few years.

Right now, tell us what you’re going to do to show your support for rights of way by signing our pledge for paths.
