Given the introduction of the new regulations (Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020), and to comply with social distancing guidelines the Public Rights of Way listed below are temporarily closed.
Footpaths have only been closed where there is a heightened risk of the disease being spread. We recognise that such closures will regrettably limit people’s access to the countryside, however these are temporary measures that are put in place to protect local people, including those that work and live on farms, therefore we ask for your understanding during these challenging times.
Farmland – please remember our farmers have no choice regarding where/how they work and spring/summer is a particularly busy period for them. They are also likely to live in buildings close to paths. We recognise that options for exercise are currently more limited, which is putting more pressure on paths that run through farmland, therefore we ask that you maintain strict social distancing measures whilst making use of the many footpaths that remain open. Please refer to our advisory notice which may be used by landowners to remind users of social distancing requirements. We need to work together to keep as many paths open as we can.
