MK Ramblers help wayfinding

Milton Keynes Ramblers has teamed up with Milton Keynes Council rights-of-way department and has funded and installed five new waymark posts and discs on footpaths in the parish of Moulsoe.  The new waymarks will help walkers to find their way on public paths in the parish.

Like every highway authority, Milton Keynes is short of staff and resources, so it was good that the Ramblers could lend a hand.  While the council has a legal duty to erect signposts where a path leaves a metalled road, and to erect waymarks as necessary to help people find their way, the waymarking duty is less clear-cut.

As David Reed, the footpath secretary for Milton Keynes Ramblers, says: ‘By co-funding five waymarking posts, the Milton Keynes Ramblers’ Group was able to bring forward the replacement of posts in an area that needed immediate attention.’
