Safety Notes

The Park is bounded and intersected by fencing and presents few hazards. You will need to use gates as you move through the park - please leave the gates as you have found them. Specifically watch out for:
- trip hazards, steep slopes and uneven ground
- stinging nettles, brambles and wild parsnip (contact with sap can cause rash/blisters)
- the area is sometimes grazed with Konik horses (there will be notices on gates with details)
- other park users and dogs
