The Government is advising that the risk of the coronavirus being passed on to others outdoors is considered to be low as long as people maintain social distancing.

In England you can leave your home to exercise and spend time outdoors for recreation.

Please see the governments latest advice on on access to green spaces 

When visiting the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at this time please:

  • Respect local communities and their concerns, please be aware you may need to be prepared to make the necessary decision to turn around if the area or car park looks busy, or is full, and come another time
  • The fire risk is currently very high – no fires, no barbeques, no smoking.
  • Follow the Countryside Code and always – leave no trace of your vist and put litter in the bin or take it home, keep dog’s under effective control and pick up after them.

During lockdown many of our access gates on Warton Crag were left open to aid social distancing & touching hard surfaces. As our placid cows are back on the nature reserve (important task of reducing grass & brash cover) please ensure gates are closed while you are out & about. https://t.co/ORLPms1Owx
