Path Problems

Walk your local paths

Help fight obstructions requiring detours over difficult ground...

... or past unfriendly locals


"If you enjoy the paths in your parish and live in or near any of those listed please consider helping the Ramblers to keep them open not just for ourselves but for those who follow."


"Our paths will disappear without you. Please think about helping the Ramblers to keep our paths where they belong – ‘at our feet’."

 

Sector Coordinators

There are four Sector Coordinators, two covering West Kent and two covering East Kent.  There is currently a vacancy in East Kent to cover the Ashford and Swale District Council areas including Romney Marsh – the exact area may negotiable to meet the needs of the applicant.  A job description for the Sector Coordinator can be found here.  For further information please contact Roger King.

Parish Footpath Observers

The parishes listed below are without Parish Footpath Observers (PFOs) who are the first line of defence in the continuing struggle to keep our footpath network open to all.  This they do by monitoring the condition of the paths in their parishes and by reporting any issues encountered.  Click here to view a map of the vacant parishes.
