Subject: Our best walks at risk?
Our National Trails are under threat and we need your help.
The Government is planning to drastically change the way National Trails – including the iconic Pennine Way – are looked after.
The Government wants to wash its hands of National Trails and hand responsibility for them to hard-pressed local authorities and volunteer groups.
These plans are bad news for walkers.
They could lead to a massive fall in the quality of the Trails. This would also be devastating for the local businesses and communities who rely on trade the Trails bring to their area.
Ramblers have been very clear that National Trails need a national champion.
