    Reminders:

    Please observe the Country Code.
    Boots are recommended for all walks.
    Please check frequently that the person BEHIND you is in sight, especially at junctions.
    When walking on roads, keep to the right except when approaching a right-hand bend.

    Dogs:

    Check with the leader that the walk is suitable. Dogs must be kept under control and not become a nuisance to others. They must be on a lead on roads, enclosed paths and fields with farm animals.

    Country Code:

    Be safe – plan ahead and follow any signs
    Leave gates and property as you find them
    Protect plants and animals and take your litter home
    Consider other people
