The Big Pathwatch
This summer the Ramblers will be calling on walkers to help with its biggest and most ambitious footpath survey. The Big Pathwatch is the only project that aims not only to walk every right of way in England and Wales to find out what state the paths are in, but also to help fix any problems.
Walkers will be able to download the free Big Pathwatch smartphone app and share their experiences as they walk every right of way within a specific grid square. They’ll be asked to share the positive features of the walk, the beautiful views or interesting landscapes they see, as well as noting any problems they encounter.
The results of the Big Pathwatch will allow the Ramblers to create a comprehensive report on the state of the path network, which will be used to campaign for its upkeep. Where possible, Ramblers’ path maintenance teams will be heading out to fix problems found through the survey, clearing brambles and other overgrown vegetation, improving path surfaces and fixing bridges and gates.
Importantly, the results will enable the Ramblers to come up with other long term solutions to ensure the path network is protected for years to come.
The project will be officially launched on 13 July, and all Ramblers members will be encouraged to sign up and pick a square to survey. Keep an eye on our website http://www.ramblers.org.uk/pathwatch for pre-registration and further details coming soon.
The Big Pathwatch is generously funded by the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust.
A free resource and one which is easily printed off etc.
Log into the search engine Bing and then go to Bing maps or just google Bing maps, which automatically displays a standard road map for an area.
A drop down menu changes the display to an Ordnance survey map which can then be printed off or saved.
Thanks to Chris for those.

Thanks to Anne and Ian for the information.
This web site is part of the Ramblers Webs series set up for groups and areas with the support of volunteers and Ramblers GB.
Our previous webmaster has been unable to continue in the role. Brian's dedication and enthusiasm are sorely missed.
We have lauched this new website which should be easier to keep up to date.
At present, due to time commitments, we feel unable to keep the walks report up.
You would be most welcome.
