Walking on farm land

A plea from our landowners

COVID has meant that more and more people are taking the opportunity to walk through our gorgeous countryside but, unfortunately, not everyone is following the rules. The Countryside Code has recently been updated and a link to the document follows, below.

Could you please ensure, when walking through farm land, you keep your dogs on their leads, pick up their poop and stay on the Right of Way at all times, even if it is a little muddy. We have had reports of walkers not following the basic rules and, sadly, some criminal damage on one of our farms, where the wire fencing has been cut, a real worry for the safety and welfare of the animals.
