Who we are
Formed in 1995, GLASS is the National User Group for those who enjoy using the Country’s network of ancient unsurfaced public roads and vehicular rights of way. We are a not for profit association dedicated to driving, protecting and researching our unique heritage of unsurfaced public highways. We promote legal and responsible driving as a way of enjoying the countryside, campaign against irresponsible use and aim to keep them open for all to use.
What we do
On a local or county level, we meet for ‘Laning’ trips that are organised in accordance with our code of conduct. We campaign against illegal obstructions and for all routes to be correctly signed and recorded.
GLASS attempts to keep you informed of what’s happening to our rights of way up and down the country by means of our monthly bulletins, web forum and through an organisational structure of area representatives. We also publiush a magazine twice a year.
GLASS helps educate all users to utilise the network sensibly and sustainably, where problems do exist, we take an integral role in rights of way management. We provide a voice for users of unsurfaced Rights of Way either through our area representatives talking to local highway authorities or our national officers getting our point of view over to the Government, the Press and others.
Glass offers its members access to information and advice, a bi-annual magazine, monthly digital bulletins and full access to TrailWise, our comprehensive on-line database of rights of way in Great Britain.
We also have a network of local representatives who can offer local knowledge and ideas on route planning to our members.
