Campaigning work

Ramblers works tirelessly to defend and promote access to walkers.
It was at the forefront of the introduction of the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act to confirm access to some open hilltops or quiet valleys . It has been to promoted coastal access throughout the UK and the Marine and Coastal Access Bill received the Royal Assent just in time to allow completion of the Wales coastal path.
