The Ramblers is a charity whose goal is to protect the ability of people to enjoy the sense of freedom and benefits that come from being outdoors on foot.
They are an association of people and groups who come together to both enjoy walking and other outdoor pursuits and also to ensure that they protect and expand the infrastructure and places people go walking.
