Our Rights of Way Team supports a number of regular volunteers and volunteer groups who help improve the rights of way network in their local area.

We provide tools, materials, training and leadership to help volunteers to work safely and effectively. Their work is highly valued and offers great opportunities for personal development, community involvement and team working.

What can volunteers do?

Volunteers can be involved in a variety of ways:

  • surveying the rights of way in a community or area, recording the condition and any works required
  • maintaining stiles and gates and keeping hedges trimmed
  • waymarking – attaching information discs to fittings and installing waymark posts
  • installing bridges and boardwalks
  • cutting the path's vegetation.

What can you expect from us?

We will provide:

  • The worksite and tool and safety training
  • hand tools and other protective equipment, such as gloves, goggles and hi-visibility vests
  • support from the Rights of Way Team with training, practical tasks and rights of Way information
  • opportunities to meet and socialise with other volunteer groups.
