What we do

Peak & Northern Footpaths Society (PNFS) is a community of individuals and organisations committed to protecting your right to access the outdoors. We do this by monitoring, protecting and improving public rights of way such as footpaths and bridleways. Since 1894, PNFS has defended the rights of everyone to use these routes and held landowners and councils to account in their duty to maintain them.

This work is entirely undertaken by our team of dedicated volunteers. If you have a passion for enjoying the great outdoors, please join us today
