This ramble is let by Di Pettet, a member of Hampshire RoamAbility, who has led accessible rambles for Isle of Wight Walking Festivals. Hampshire RoamAbility run rambles in Hampshire and surrounding counties, for people using mobility scooters and powerchairs, and walkers are also welcome. The rambles are graded according to distance and degree of difficulty so that people can decide if they are suitable, but are usually between 5 and 8 miles long. The group also campaigns to improve access to the countryside by getting barriers changed
