The new government guidelines allow us to travel further from home to enjoy the great outdoors. However, many sites, car parks and public conveniences in the High Weald AONB are still closed at present, so do check online before you travel. Please also read the latest guidance on safe use of green spaces or watch this helpful video explaining the Coronavirus Countryside Code, created by Natural England.
Most importantly, please:
- Observe social distancing; keep 2m distance from those outside your household at all times and wash your hands immediately when returning home. Carry hand sanitiser if necessary
- Do not use barbecues as they risk causing wildfires, particularly during the recent dry weather across Kent, Sussex and Surrey
- Keep dogs under effective control and on a lead when you are around farm animals
- Leave gates as you find them and follow instructions on signs
- Park considerately - please dont obstruct pavements or gateways to fields
- Bring a bag with you to take home your litter.
Thank you in advance for being respectful, sensible and considerate, and for helping us keep this beautiful landscape safe for all to enjoy.
