How many of us have been frustrated by paths that appear to have been cut short or seen ancient footpaths on old maps that have become overgrown, neglected and unused because they were not registered on Definitive Maps of the 1950s?
Apparently, this is a nationwide problem for walkers. The Ramblers estimate that 10,000 miles of historic paths may be missing from modern maps of England and Wales and we only have until 2026 to save them – this is the Government’s deadline.
Fortunately, thanks to the ‘Don’t Lose Your Way’ scheme launched this February, we can help get these paths reinstated before we lose them and their historical significance for ever.
