Essential reading for all visiting, working or living in the Peak District – The Countryside Code – Downloadable

Respect everyone
• be considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside
• leave gates and property as you find them
• do not block access to gateways or driveways when parking
• be nice, say hello, share the space
• follow local signs and keep to marked paths unless wider access is available
Protect the environment
• take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
• take care with BBQs and do not light fires
• always keep dogs under control and in sight
• dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
• care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
Enjoy the outdoors
• check your route and local conditions
• plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
• enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory

If you run a business, let a holiday home or other accommodation and are able to display the countryside code please do so to try to encourage a degree of respect for the local community and the local environment.
