Know before you visit

With restrictions now starting to ease it's understandable that we all want to get out and explore. However, we ALL still have our part to play in managing, mitigating and continuing to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading.

Here are some tips to remember whilst you're out and about in our beautiful area on how we can all look after people, businesses, the environment, our communities and make sure we're taking responsibility for our actions!

1. Hands, Face, Space

  • Washing your hands regularly or using hand sanitiser still remains essential to help stop you and your loved ones catching Covid-19.
  • Making space between yourselves and those not in your household is still a good idea to help prevent the spread.
  • Wearing a face covering in crowded spaces is still essential. Some local businesses may require you to wear a mask on entry - please respect this and (unless exempt) politely do as requested.
  • Use the Covid-19 NHS app to check in to the places you visit. Not got a smart phone? Don't worry a member of staff will be able to take your details.

2. Respect our local communities.

  • Always park responsibly and only in designated areas.
  • Do not trespass on private land.
  • Take your litter with you or put it in a bin.
  • Be considerate to local residents and businesses.

3. Help us to protect our local wildlife and the breathtaking scenery.

  • Always be careful if you're heading out in to the countryside as much of the landscape is home to animals, from insects and butterflies to sheep and cows.
  • Always keep dogs on leads and clean up after them.
  • Put your rubbish in the bin or take it home with you.
  • Discarded cigarettes and glass bottles can cause a fire - make sure you dispose of them properly.
  • Leave the BBQ at home! We have a Public Space Protection Order in place banning BBQ's, wildfires, fireworks and Chinese lanterns throughout Staffordshire Moorlands. Any open fires are also not permitted in the Peak District National Park.
  • Stick to the Public Right of Way.
  • Wild camping (anywhere outside of designated camp sites) is only allowed with landowner permission!

4. Plan ahead.
