Jack Cornish - Reviewing a groundbreaking piece of research

This week Dom welcomes Ramblers' Jack Cornish onto the Outside & Active Podcast to talk through a groundbreaking piece of research

Jack Cornish

This week on the Outside & Active Podcast Dom is joined by Jack Cornish

Jack is head of paths at the Ramblers, leading their work to protect, expand and improve the UK's path network. Jack joined the Ramblers in 2017, having recently completed a 1,550 mile walk all the way across Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Jack is the author of a book called The Lost Paths, a personal journey and exploration of the deep history of English and Welsh paths and how this millennia-old network was created, has evolved, and been transformed. 

An important part of Jack’s focus at the Ramblers has been the flagship Don’t Lose Your Way project which identified over 49,000 miles of paths that could be lost forever because they are not legally recorded as public rights of way. 

He has regularly appeared in the media including the BBC, Country Living magazine and The Guardian.

In this episode we talk through a groundbreaking new piece of research. Available to read here.
