The Future of Access

November 6 marks the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest, a historic document that gave common people the right of access to royal forests. This can be seen as the first step in a campaign spanning centuries, seeking the legal guarantee of freedom for people to access our beautiful landscapes.

This anniversary brings to life the long history of the struggle for greater access to the countryside, a mission that is very close to many people’s hearts. But what do people want for the next 800 years? Now is your chance to share your views and help shape the future of access.

This survey has been designed to establish your current walking habits, your current experience of access land, and gives you the opportunity to share your views on what we should be striving for in the future. We'll use the findings to help shape our future campaigning work on access.

There are 16 questions and it should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. There are five pages to the survey, and to move on to the next you need to answer every question on the page. If the 'next page' button doesn't work, go back over the page to make sure you've answered all questions.

If you have any issues completing the survey, please email [email protected]
