Ramblers' Association is Britain's biggest organisation working for walkers, a
registered charity with 139,000 members across England, Scotland and Wales.
We've been looking after Britain's footpaths and defending its beautiful
countryside for more than 65 years by :-
protecting Britain's unique
network of public paths - which, all too often, 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 our
safeguarding the countryside from
unsightly and polluting developments so that walkers can enjoy its tranquillity
educating the public about their
rights and responsibilities and the health and environmental benefits of
walking so that everyone can enjoy our wonderful heritage.
We can only do these things with your
help. Join the Ramblers' and in return, you'll get membership of a local walking
Group offering regular walks, social events and the opportunity to get involved
in practical and campaigning work; a lively quarterly magazine, Walk, the
Ramblers' Yearbook, packed with useful walking information and places to
stay; and discretionary discounts on outdoor clothing and equipment.
We have about 450 Groups across Great
Britain, organised into around 50 Areas. The governing body of the Association
is its General Council which consists mainly of delegates appointed by the
Areas. They elect an Executive Committee which establishes policy and uses funds
in pursuit of the association's objectives. There are also Councils for Scotland
and Wales, and offices in London, Cardiff, Wrexham and Kinross.
