Join the Search for Lost Paths and Hidden Ways

The Ramblers Association invites you to join the search for lost paths and hidden ways! They are running a campaign to find, map and save our rights of way.

Our paths are one of our most precious assets, hidden in plain sight, and often taken for granted. They allow everyone to enjoy the countryside, both on our doorstep and across Britain’s iconic landscapes.

But an estimated 10,000 miles of paths across England and Wales are at risk of being lost forever, if they are not added to the definitive map by January 1, 2026.

The Ramblers Association is therefore asking everyone to join a growing movement of people using the ‘Don’t Lose Your Way’ mapping tool;  a tool that enables any member of the public to view current and historic maps of England and Wales to uncover lost paths and hidden ways, and help build on the excellent work of Ramblers volunteers over the years.
