We aim to preserve and develop the extensive rural and urban footpath network in our area. As the oldest surviving regional footpath society in the UK we have over 100 years of experience to call upon on your behalf.
All of our work is done by volunteers, and whether you are a rambler, a stroller, a fell walker or a dog walker, we can help each other. Our work helps you enjoy your walking and your support will help us protect and improve the footpath network for everybody. We cover Derbyshire, Lancashire, Staffordshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside. By law Highway Authorities must inform the society of any proposals affecting a right of way in the region.
