improvements to the car parks at Moel Famau and the upgrading of paths at
Loggerheads and works at Horseshoe Falls to improve access.
Denbighshire County Council’s Countryside and Heritage Services Manager, said:
“We know it has been a difficult period for residents not being able to enjoy
the countryside here in Denbighshire and I would like to thank all those who
have been following the exercise from home rules.
and Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB have been preparing for the change in
restrictions. However, it is vital visitors play their part when returning to
our countryside sites.
important visitors know what restrictions and guidelines are in place before
travelling and to keep themselves and others safe they should avoid busy times,
check ahead to see if facilities are open and where possible access quieter
sites and walks during the initial period of re-opening. This will help avoid
busy periods and parking issues.
“It is also
important visitors respect the countryside and act responsibly during their
visit and this means keeping dogs on leads and not to litter.
“We would like
to reassure residents we will continue to work with North Wales Police and with
partners to spread the message that cross-border travel is still restricted.”
