Covid 19 Update

Last updated on Wednesday 18 August 2021

During the pandemic, this page has provided updates on what government restrictions mean for walking and Ramblers activities. Restrictions have now eased considerably but we’ll continue updating this page so you can be always be sure you have the right information.

Whenever you’re out and about, have fun, keep safe and be considerate to fellow walkers. Always follow the Countryside Code when in England and Wales, and the Outdoor Access Code when in Scotland. Remember you can use Ramblers Routes to discover local walks, close to home.

England

The UK government roadmap for lifting lockdown in England is now at Step 4, which means:

  • Informal walks with family & friends can take place in groups of any size.

  • Ramblers group walks can take place in groups of any size – but check with your local group to find out if you need to book. Car-sharing and coach rambles can take place.

  • Path maintenance can take place – please check with your local group.

  • Other Ramblers activities can take place – please check with your local group. We recommend meeting outdoors or online where possible.
