If you notice a problem with a footpath In Manchester such as an obstruction and if it is a serious blockage please report to KevinGillham , or tel: 0161 234 5148. Please remember, if you are reporting a problem to the council in this way, please also copy in our footpath officer, Richard Cleverley

In Manchester we now have a team working together on this. Barry Windle is coordinating path clearing, we have made a good start. Maggie Walker is coordinating the path inspectors, who check a small number of paths once a year. Richard Cleverley is collating inspection reports, passing them onto the council, with whom he and Salle Dare meet regularly to discuss maintaining and improving the state of paths and legal issues. If you want to help with clearing or inspecting please contact Salle Dare. salle_e_dare@yahoo.co.uk

Get Involved

You may also be interested in attending a committeee meeting, so you can meet the committee members, listen to a guest speaker and generally feel more connected to the group. If you would like a lift or are concerned that you would not know anyone, give our secretary Mags Metcalf a ring. Contact details are available on the Committee page.

Keep up with Ramblers' Campaigns

It's also really important that we remember that the Ramblers is NOT just about going on lovely walks (great as that is!); the Ramblers is also a campaigning organisation on a range of issues.


One of the Ramblers’ key missions is to “protect rights of way, campaign for access to open country and defend the countryside.” And some of these basic principles were under threat with the proposed "sell off" of English forestry lands. Members of the Manchester and Salford Ramblers played their part in the protests.
