We’ll keep this page up to date with the latest information so please check back regularly.

Visiting the path safely

We’re very much looking forward to welcoming visitors back to the path again.  Follow this guidance for a great time walking whilst keeping yourself and others safe.

Plan Ahead

Follow the Countryside Code whilst walking the path

Respect other people

  • consider the local community and other people enjoying the outdoors
  • park carefully so access to gateways and driveways are clear
  • leave gates and property as you find them
  • follow paths but give way to others where it's narrow

Protect the natural environment

  • leave no trace of your visit, take all your litter home
  • be careful with BBQs, and don’t light fires
  • keep dogs under effective control
  • dog poo - bag it and bin it, or take it with you

Enjoy the outdoors

  • plan ahead, check what facilities are open, be prepared
  • follow advice and local signs and obey social distancing measures
