Donate a Gate & rRIPPLE

Help improve public access to our local network of footpaths and other rights of way?


A good way is to replace awkward, difficult and derelict stiles by donating either a conventional gate or a kissing gate. This can be done for as little as £250, including a plaque with a special message for you or from you, and of course installation. 

rRIPPLE

There is a "Donate a Gate" scheme covering north Buckinghamshire, run by rRIPPLE, as part of an Area scheme run by Ramblers, who co-ordinate their work with Bucks County Council.  

The scheme is open to individuals, groups, organisations, businesses and parish councils. It is run by North Bucks rRIPPLE (ramblers Repairing and Improving Public Paths for Leisure & Exercise), whose team will install the gate, organise a plaque with your name and message, tell you where it is, and send you a photograph of it when the work is done. 

To find out more or join the team, contact rRIPPLE co-ordinator Bill Piers on 01844 290923 or 07799 110128, or by e-mail at williamjsbpiers@gmail.com. For more information on their work, click here.

Aylesbury and District Ramblers Support "Donate a Gate"

Aylesbury Ramblers celebrated their 50th Anniversary this year. As part of our celebrations we have donated two gates on the Outer Aylesbury Ring. The first gate, fitted by rRIPPLE, is located on the OAR near Wing, at the junctions of paths WIN/16 and WIN/29 at Grid Reference: SP870230. Our second gate was fitted on the OAR at Westcott in January 2017, Grid Reference SP724170. Click here to see photgraphs of the gates and Bill our "fitter".

Aylesbury Ramblers are also very pleased to have been able to support the Donate a Gate Scheme run by the Chiltern Society back in 2014. The gate, pictured below,  is located just outside Princes Risborough at Grid Reference SP801039.
