Safety and Dogs

Please bring protective clothing in case it rains and ensure that dogs are kept on a lead when passing through fields of sheep and cattle.

Please enjoy your walk

Safety

We are hoping for good weather on the day, but please bring protective clothing in case it rains.

We also advise you to bring a mobile phone and the emergency number (07748 853 328). Please be aware that mobile phone reception is patchy in the Wye valley.

Please wear appropriate footwear for footpaths and uneven countryside, and bring sun cream if it is a hot day.  It would also be a good idea to bring an adequate supply of water and plasters with you.

Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Unfortunately, none of the walks are accessible by wheel chairs or push chairs.

Dogs

Dogs are welcome on the walk. Please ensure that dogs are kept on a lead when passing through fields of sheep and cattle.
