Ash Brook Dog Walking Field

Please Note

CCTV is in operation.

We are located in a rural area down a single track road. The lane is used by walkers, horse riders and farming vehicles which all must have priority right of way.

We value our local community and ask that all customers respect the above by giving way to tractors, horse riders and walkers and not mounting grass verges or lawns.

While the road is a national speed limit, we expect our customers to not drive above 30mph to ensure the safety of our residents.

Our neighbors are keeping us informed of vehicle registrations who are not abiding to our terms of use and those who show disregard will be banned from using our facility.

Subject to our planning conditions, no more than 2 cars are allowed on the car park at any one time. Please do not park on the grass verges or highway as this will also breach our conditions and could lead to closure of this facility.

Customers in breach of these terms and conditions will be asked to leave and banned from using the field.
