Join the Open Spaces Society

Your paths and open spaces could be lost for ever - help us protect them.

Join or renew your membership today.

We’re the Open Spaces Society, Britain’s oldest conservation society, and we’ve been protecting land for the public across England and Wales since 1865.

As a small charity, we are fleet of foot and effective—but we cannot function without the valuable support of our members.

As well as aiding our work, you'll enjoy some unique benefits by joining the Open Spaces Society:

  • Expert guidance from our specialist case officers to help you protect access to common land, town and village greens, open spaces, and public paths in your area.
  • Three copies a year of our lively and informative magazine, Open Space.
  • Professional training for anyone with an interest in our commons, greens and open spaces.
  • Access to our legal fund.

Whether you are an individual, a local group, or a local authority at any level, the Open Spaces Society can help you.

Join today for as little as £3 a month.
