Join the Big Pathwatch
Join our most ambitious campaign ever to protect and improve our glorious paths in England and Wales – See more at: http://www.ramblers.org.uk/get-involved/the-big-pathwatch/join-the-big-pathwatch.aspx#sthash.uMwlW1h7.dpufTaking part is a walk in the park – or the hills, the countryside or the woods. And wherever you walk, use our handy new app to tell us what you find. It could be a wonky bridge or a locked gate; a flooded path or fallen tree. We’ll then try to fix the problems that you find. We’ll also celebrate the wonderful things you see – like beautiful views and amazing wildlife. And together we’ll keep our paths open for everyone to enjoy.

The latest version of the app now includes a bug fix that allows you to take photos and share them directly with your friends on Twitter and Facebook. Download now.
Don’t have a smartphone or tablet?
No problem. Simply use our web version to pick your square and print off a map. After your walk you can come back and upload your findings.
How do you take part?
On OS Explorer maps of England and Wales, everywhere is divided into 1 km grid squares. To take part, pick one of these squares and walk every footpath in it.
Our app makes picking and walking your square simple and fun. While you walk highlight any path problems you encounter – and the wonderful things you see. You can upload photos and share your experiences on Facebook and Twitter.
Which square you pick is up to you. You could scale our highest peaks, wander along the beach, or picnic in the woods. Spend time with friends, plonk yourself into nature, and all the while protect our glorious paths.
