Feeding deer can make them unwell , please allow them to feed naturally.
Observe and enjoy from a distance. Farm animals have carefully controlled diets to keep them healthy
Nobody enjoys seeing litter, please take it home. Dog poo changes the soil, plants and impacts the wildlife so please clear up after your dog and take it home.
Heather takes a minimum of five years to grow back following a fire. Please don't light fires or bring barbecues to the Chase.
Please only use official cycle tracks and bridleways. This avoids disturbance to wildlife and damage to plants.
Please always stay on bridleways, going off track can damage the plants and wildlife that makes the Chase special.
Going off the paths can have a big impact on wildlife, and may force birds off nests and deer away from young.
The heathland is home to species of ground nesting birds so it is very important to always keep your dog on a lead during the nesting season (April - August)
Parking in official car parks reduces the disturbance to wildlife and allows nature to thrive.
If we work together we just might help our home.

There a pools and ponds across the Chase. Please stay away from water in order to avoid dangerous situations.
