SummaryAs a Rights of Way Volunteer working with the Countryside & Rights of Way team you can help to survey, maintain and improve the network of routes.
There are more than 3,000km of footpaths, bridleways and byways in the county providing opportunities for people to enjoy the outdoors on foot, horseback or bicycle. Volunteering allows you to contribute to the upkeep of these wonderfully varied routes by walking or riding to complete a survey.
As a Surveyor, you are the eyes and ears of the county’s Rights of Way team. You will carry out surveys, report on problems and make simple repairs such as replacing a waymark disc or trimming small areas of encroaching vegetation.
By ‘adopting’ a Parish, Volunteer Surveyors choose when and where they would like to walk, reporting on the paths as they go. This is a great way to explore your local area as the aim is to survey all the paths within the parish. Surveyors report as and when they need to, covering each path no more than once every 6 months.
We currently have availability for Surveyors in the following Parishes:
Aldbury, Cheshunt, Flamstead, Flaunden, Furneux Pelham, High Wych, Flamstead & Goffs Oak, Knebworth, Markyate, Watford Rural and Wheathampstead.
