Ramblers Big Pathwatch

Ramblers Big Pathwatch

Step up and protect the places you love to walk with the Big Pathwatch. Join the Ramblers' most ambitious campaign ever to protect and improve our glorious paths in England and Wales. Taking part is a walk in the park. From 13th July simply step out and walk nearby paths at home or on holiday and report back on what you find using the Big Pathwatch smartphone app.

It could be a wonky bridge or a locked gate; a flooded path or fallen tree. The Ramblers will then work to solve the problems you find, as well as celebrate the wonderful things you see – like beautiful views and amazing wildlife. With your help, the Ramblers can keep our paths open for everyone to enjoy. How do you take part?

1. Pick a grid square. On OS Explorer maps of England and Wales, everywhere is divided into 1 km grid squares. Use the Big Pathwatch app to pick your square.

2. Go for a walk. Walk every footpath in your square. You can follow yourself on your phone as you walk.

3. As you walk, use the app to highlight any path problems you encounter – and the wonderful things you want to share on Facebook and Twitter.
