With lockdown easing and more people, both visitors and locals out and about exploring the countryside it seems timely to remind everyone of the Countryside Code, and particularly important at lambing time.

The detailed Countryside Code can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-countryside-code/the-countryside-code-advice-for-countryside-visitors or the simplified leaflet can be downloaded at the link below.
