Advocating Access for All

PROW Explorer


About Public Rights of Way Explorer

I’m Charlotte and I’m a fully qualified Hill and Moorland Leader based in Cumbria. I work full time in the access sector and inspire and educate people through this blog and social media as an ambassador for Ordnance Survey, British Canoeing, The National Outdoor Expo and Green Space Dark Skies.

As a passionate equestrian I volunteer at the Lake District Calvert Trust as a horse riding and carriage driving instructor giving people with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. As well as volunteering as a Brownie leader to get more girls into the outdoors.

I regularly write articles to raise awareness about access and features on a number of podcasts, not only to advocate access but to share my personal experiences of the outdoors.

What People Say

“Her efforts have hugely impacted my life from feeling isolated and trapped within my own four walls she inspired me and gave me the confidence to get active in my own way. I’ve managed my first ever wild swim. I thought lockdown would ruin all my hard work to rebuild my mental state but with a bit of inspiration from Charlotte I’ve discovered new places to get some head space and to do what I feel is achievable without comparing my progress to others.”

Advocate Access Yourself

Access is important for us all, these routes and waterways provide us a way of connecting with nature. It’s essential that everyone has the opportunity to access these green and blue spaces for their mental and physical well being and the only way these will be protected is if everyone takes action.
