Looking after the Forest

The Forest is a sanctuary for our visitors, and you can help us to protect it. When visiting the Forest please follow The Countryside Code and:

Respect everyone living in, working in, and enjoying the Forest

  • Remain on marked paths.
  • Keep dogs in sight, under close control and on leads near livestock.
  • Keep gateways, driveways and verges clear of vehicles

Protect the environment

  • Take your litter home and do not light fires or have BBQs
  • Dog poo – bag it and bin it (in the car park or at home)
  • Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
