Countryside Access Wardens

Countryside Access Wardens help keep the public rights of way network open.

As a warden, you will directly help your local community and visitors by carrying out simple jobs to make the rights of way network friendlier to use, giving them the confidence to explore the countryside.

All training and equipment is free and you can fit work around your own schedule.
