Feedback...

Ask Dr D.

E mail from DarrylW4:  This is a question about your personal caching habits; Were you to happen across a geocache torn apart (perhaps smashed as it dropped from its hiding place by a storm) and the log destroyed, what might you do?

The Countryside Code...

What is it?

From the Natural England website:

"The Countryside Code applies to all parts of the countryside. Most of it is just good common sense, designed to help us all to respect, protect and enjoy our countryside.

The Code, which applies in England and Wales, makes it clear what the responsibilities are for both the public and the people who manage the land.

The Countryside Code started life in the 1950s as the Country Code. It was updated in 2012."

Respect Other People...

  • Consider the local community and other people enjoying the outdoors
  • Leave gates and property as you find them and follow paths unless wider access is available

Protect the natural environment ...

  • Leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home
  • Keep dogs under effective control

Enjoy the outdoors...

  • Plan ahead and be prepared
  • Follow advice and local signs
