Footpath Problems

Ramblers walkers are encouraged to report any problems they find with footpaths, such as broken or dangerous stiles, blocked or overgrown paths, or flytipping. All problems will be dealt with by the relevant local authority. Nowadays, it's quite easy to report problems online with most authorities. A photo of the problem usually helps. The local authority for Mid Berks Ramblers area is West Berkshire. Most of our walks take place in West Berks, Oxfordshire (which inclues South Oxfordshire), Hampshire or Wokingham District. Click on a link to take you to the appropriate reporting page.

The Pathwatch feature of the Ramblers website also allows you to report problems anywhere in England and Wales - you need to register to use the online system, or you can log problems instantly with your smart phone.

Alternatively, Brian Jones, a former Berkshire Area Footpath Secretary, has developed a website to simplify the process. All you have to do is click on a map to identify the location of the problem and type a few words of description. You can try the website here.

The final method is to notify the Mid Berks Footpath Secretary with details, for onward forwarding to the relevant authority.
