The Ramblers exist to facilitate, for the benefit of everyone, the enjoyment and discovery that walking outdoors can bring; and to promote respect for the life of the countryside. We encourage walking; protect rights of way; defend the beauty of the countryside; and have campaigned for many years for freedom to roam over uncultivated, open country. We are a democratic, voluntary organisation, registered as a charity (no.1093577).
