The Uttlesford Ramblers

Making a walk a pleasure

Uttlesford Footpath working party

The Uttlesford Footpath Working Party

With the reduction of local government funding, and the number of footpaths that were becoming over grown and difficult to walk, Uttlesford Ramblers decided to set up a working party to undertake clearance work. We have reopened two completely unpassable paths and cleared others which were heavily restricted.

The group meets monthly, usually on the second Monday and spends the morning undertaking the work before going to a pub for a well deserved lunch and to plan the next work.  Work stops in the spring once birds start nesting and resumes again in the autunm. We set out to achieve a real purpose, but we also enjoy being in the open air and working together. At the end of each work party looking back on what has been done, is an uplifting feeling.

Why not join us and get your local footpath cleared.
