The Countryside Code

Any prospective walkers should make themselves familiar with the Countryside Code which can be downloaded by clicking HERE. The Countryside Code gives common sense advice to help everybody respect, protect and enjoy the countryside. It is also there to support local communities who live and work in the countryside.

Five simple messages summarise the Code:

1. Be safe – plan ahead and follow any signs
2. Leave gates and property as you find them
3. Protect plants and animals and take your litter home
4. Keeps dogs under close control
5. Consider other people

The Code applies to all parts of the countryside in England.
