Keeping the Park beautiful

19 July 2020

It has been wonderful to see so many people really enjoying their local countryside and exploring new areas that they never knew existed. Although most people are respectful of their surroundings, unfortunately we have seen an increase in littering, fly-tipping and thoughtless actions which cause damage and can harm wildlife and cattle. Most of the land is privately owned so please stick to the footpaths. There is no “right to roam” within the Countryside Park.

A growing problem is people leaving their litter lying around. Please take your litter home.

This is important because wildlife and farm animals will eat what is left behind and could become seriously ill or even die as a result. Taking your rubbish home also means that others can enjoy clean and pleasant green spaces and waterways.

We ask that visitors are considerate of all other users of the Park – walkers, cyclists, horse riders, bird watchers etc, and, of course, the farmers who make their livelihoods through feeding the nation and helping to manage the countryside.

Footpaths - 1 July

All paths are dry now, but some are getting overgrown in places.

Report overgrown rights of way to East Sussex and other paths to the Friends of Combe Valley.
