Know before you visit

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!

Washing your hands regularly or using hand sanitiser still remains essential to help stop you and your loved ones catching Covid-19. Though wearing a face covering is no longer essential it's still good to wear one in crowded places such as in shops and on public transport. Some local businesses may require you to wear a mask on entry - please respect this and (unless exempt) politely do as requested.

1. 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.

2. 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!

3. Plan ahead.
