Those who like to go walking
will have received mixed news from the Budget, according to the Ramblers.
It has expressed concerns that comments about planning will herald announcements soon with a "presumption in favour of sustainable development", something it suggests could mean many green spaces being built on.
However, the organisation welcomed news that there will be more investment in improving railways, many of which access rural areas.
Director of policy and campaigns Nicky Philpott commented: "Where possible we encourage people to take public transport, or travel by their own steam, to get to the start of walks."
It noted this includes the Welsh Valleys and the Hope Valley line between Manchester and Sheffield.
The Hope Valley line includes stations like Edale, the start of the Pennine Way and a good base for climbing moors like Kinder Scout, Rushup Edge and Mam Tor.
Walkers can choose two alternative routes onto the Pennine Way from Edale, one of which takes in the steep climb of Jacob's Ladder.
