About ACE

ACE – Accessible Countryside for Everyone is here to promote access to the countryside, leisure and sport.

My aim in setting up ACE was to provide a “one stop shop” for details of accessible walks and trails it has developed into a broader resource offering details of disabled / all ability sport, disabled, family and carers support, tourist information, wheelchair taxis, accessible pubs and restaurants, holidays and accommodation suitable for wheelchair users and mobility impaired people – all intended to make it easier to find accessible places to go, things to do, help or support.

The walks and sites listed will generally be easy going, pleasant and enjoyable, though I may throw in a few long distance and more challenging trails as well. I hope that wheelchair users, families with buggies or joggers looking for a pleasant run will all find these walks and resources useful.

The listed sites are selected for the physical access aspect however a number also have facilities for those with sight or hearing impairment generally this will be mentioned in the text.

Please note the information on the site is provided in good faith, I am dependant on the information I receive and obtain from published sources. I do not have the resources to inspect or check any site / venue and recommend that you always check directly with the place you intend to visit, to be sure of suitable accessibility and facilities.

About the Site

Each Region has its own sub-site, with information provided at County / District level. Where I have it I include information on walks, parks, nature reserves, beaches, sport, recreation, support organisation , useful tourist info, disabled friendly taxis, accessible campsites, pubs, restaurants and hotel dining.

I also list National Organisations supporting disabled people and carers, National Organisations supporting Children, Parents and Families and organisations offering sporting and recreational activities for disabled people.

For anyone thinking of 'creating accessibility' at a site or project there is a page with links to reference material and best practice.

The site is evolving and I hope that you will keep coming back to the site, ACE is here to save you time searching the internet for information, ACE does this for you bringing together in one place, what I believe to be reliable information, from official and reputable sources

The Countryside is for Everyone

England and Wales has some of the most fantastic countryside, from mountains and valleys to rolling hills and scenic coast.

There are thousands of miles of public footpaths, bridleways, green lanes, trails and tracks however we have found that so little appears to be accessible to those using wheelchairs or mobility scooters, parents with buggies or those with mobility impairment who find stiles difficult to negotiate.

I am not able to remove the obstacles but I can publicise the places that are accessible. We all have a right to enjoy the countryside and our hope is that this site will help in making it more accessible to more people. . . Enjoy. . . The Countryside IS for Everyone.
