Footpaths

The Ramblers




The Ramblers are involved, not just in walking, but in maintaining and developing our rights of way.
In Derbyshire alone there are over 3000 miles
(of which 619 are in our group area) and we have a small group of volunteers who assist the County Council in this.
If you would like to be involved, please let us know.

You’ll be very welcome to join our footpath maintenance team – or help the Group in any other way.
As a volunteer you are right at the heart of our work to promote walking whilst protecting and improving the places people walk.

Good countryside access depends on reporting all rights of way problems.
Don’t assume they have already been reported.
Take a photo if you can and report either by;
Pathwatch, Derbyshire County Council, Fix My Street, or by this website.


We are currently concentrating on a ‘Ploughing and Cropping’ campaign and seeking to monitor the significant problems this gives walkers when meeting blockages or trying to negotiate the line of a right of way.
It is an area where, because problems are relatively temporary, the County Council wrongly gives them little importance.
If you meet a problem relating to ploughing or cropping obstructions to legal rights of way please report it to the Ploughing & Cropping Campaign.

All problem reports of any sort are forwarded to the County Council Rights of Way Team.

Although we’re glad many farmers follow the requirement to keep footpaths open for public use, there are unfortunately some who ignore the guidelines.


Free passage is essential at all times, but never more so than during the annual Chesterfield Area Walking Festival in May each year.
