Do you love walking in the Bath countryside? Are you looking for a long-term, flexible volunteer role that only requires a few hours a month? We’re looking for Volunteer Rangers to help us care for the Circuit of Bath walking route.

This beautiful 21.5 mile route has been recently way marked and improvement works are taking place, so it can be walked at any time of year. As a Circuit of Bath Ranger you will help us care for a section of the route to ensure people can continue to walk it safely. This could include vegetation clearance, particularly over the summer months, and reporting any accessibility issues including fallen trees, flooded paths and barbed wire. But more than that, collectively the Rangers will be the eyes and ears of the route and great ambassadors for walking and accessing the countryside.

Each Ranger will be assigned a 3-5 mile section of the route, and asked to walk it at least once every two months, though ideally more regularly in the summer. You can walk on any day or time that suits you and with or without company. If you would like to apply as a household or with a friend you are welcome to.

Volunteers need no experience and all the tools and equipment are provided. Please note we are looking for volunteers who are willing to commit on a medium to long term basis. Before taking on a section of the route, you’ll be invited to join an experienced volunteer on their rounds.

To learn more please download the role profile. Volunteer Rangers will be managed by the Cotswold National Landscape Team. To apply please complete the volunteer application form found here specifying that you are interested in the Circuit of Bath Ranger Role.

Alternatively, you can email nicole.daw@cotswoldsaonb.org.uk to request a volunteer application, or telephone Nicole (Tues-Thurs) on 07725 601 943. The deadline for applications is Sunday 6th March.
