Website Email Suspended

Please be aware that due to persistent and serious hacking of the ACE email I have had to disable the email system. Current ‘accessiblecountryside.org.uk’ email addresses will be terminated – this is not only frustrating but damaging the small income the site relies upon and is forcing me to consider if it is worth continuing - 02/03/2019

 

Welcome to the ACE website - promoting disabled access to the countryside, sport and leisure

Accessible Countryside for Everyone (ACE) is an independent voluntary project, it is not a sales platform, it does not endorse products, it is here to provide information and promote accessibility to leisure and sport in England and Wales – primarily aimed at those with mobility issues, there carers and families.

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 I 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 my hope is that this site will help in making it more accessible to more people. . . Enjoy. . . The Countryside IS for Everyone.
