Did you know you can walk anywhere you want in England? Well, you can’t walk anywhere, but you can walk a lot of places. Walking, or what is known elsewhere as “hiking,” is an extremely popular activity in England. In the ’30s, The Ramblers (a charity to protect walkers) organized this mass trespass to gain attention and have been committed since to protecting the rights of walkers.
One of their major accomplishments was securing people’s freedom to roam through the countryside. You see countryside, you can walk right through it. Even if the land is privately owned you can walk on it as long as there aren’t crops present and you don’t damage anything. Isn’t that cool? You cannot confine the English to sidewalks and streets. They walk where they want.
