Pathwatch App – Helping You to Report Features and Faults on Local Paths

If you have found a problem, or feature on your walk? Let the Ramblers know through their new app…

Whether it’s locked gates, rampant overgrowth or missing signs, occasionally we find our paths blocked or in need of care. Whatever the issue, Ramblers want to know about it! As Britain’s walking charity, they are here to help.


Report path problems through Pathwatch and for England and Wales they will alert the local highway authority. Where possible, they will also work with them to fix the problem. In Scotland, Pathwatch is still in a pilot stage, so Ramblers are gathering information to build up a picture of walkers’ experiences north of the border by monitoring reports received. Where appropriate we’ll share these with access authorities or landowners to try and resolve issues.

Remember Pathwatch isn’t just for reporting problems. You can also share the great things that you find on walks too – such as interesting flora and fauna or an impressive view.

By reporting problems and celebrating the great things you discover, you are not only doing your bit to look after paths, but helping to celebrate the best of British walking and find long term solutions to protecting paths and access for years to come.
