June 2021 – Enjoy the National Landscape safely

June 2021 – Enjoy the National Landscape safely


We want to encourage everyone to stay safe and respectful of other people and wildlife when exercising and enjoying recreation as we ease out of  lockdown:




  • Think of others by keeping to current social distancing guidance, avoid walking near farm buildings and homes where possible, use hand sanitiser and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors


  • Please take all litter home


  • Keep dogs under effective control and on a lead when you are around farm animals especially sheep with lambs or cows with calves.


  • Land managers may have taken action to provide extra protection of wildlife – keep and eye on changes to ensure you do not disrupt the local wildlife


  • Keep to footpaths,  even if the ground is muddy from wet weather conditions, leave gates as you find them and follow signs where they suggest alternative routes


Natural England has updated the Countryside Code for how to use outdoor spaces respectfully and safely during these

challenging times.

Please check the website for up to date information and guidance:


The full national guidelines for England can be viewed here.


We hope you enjoy  every minute inthis precious landscape .
