Time to get walking again!

With Spring on its way we start to think about getting out to walk in the beautiful English countryside again, but where to find new and interesting walks?

Walking in Yorkshire has loads of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, details of all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.

John Harris (who maintains the website) said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Yorkshire (part of the Walking in England website) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.

With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.

So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!

Responsible dog walking

Going out for a walk is an important part of your dog’s day, and the countryside can be a good place to do this. To keep you, your dog and other animals safe, follow our simple top tips for a safe countryside dog walk.


Follow the marked footpaths, close gates behind you and don’t stray into fields. Crops that are in early and later stages of growth are easily damaged by dogs and people walking on them.

Litter and dog poo

Poo bags and litter can seriously harm wildlife and farm animals as they may try to eat it, thinking it’s food. Always make sure you dispose of all your rubbish and dog poo in a bin. If there aren’t any public waste bins nearby, you should take the litter home with you and use your own bin. 

We have more information about how to dispose of different types of litter safely. Dog walkers can play an important role in keeping the countryside safe for everyone by picking up any litter you see, even if it’s not yours, and safely disposing of it in a bin. 


Many dogs will show interest in livestock and even if you think your dog wouldn’t harm another animal, accidents can happen. Dogs can easily frighten animals; ewes and lambs, in particular. Ewes can abort their unborn lambs, be separated from the herd and be seriously injured if they come into contact with dogs. Give livestock plenty of space, and don’t try to feed them as it might cause them harm.

Putting your dog in a situation where they end up chasing farm animals, wildlife or other pets can have far more serious consequences.

If your dog worries livestock, you may end up being sued for compensation and, in some circumstances, farmers are legally entitled to shoot dogs if they’re endangering their sheep.

How to stop your dog from worrying sheep

It can be all too easy to become complacent when walking your dogs, after all, it’s something we do every day. But remember, the resulting loss of life if your dog escapes your control – even for a moment – can be devastating. Don’t be caught out – follow these top tips:

  • Be aware of the effects of sheep-worrying, and let others know too
  • Make sure you know where your dog is at all times
  • If you’re letting your dog off the lead, be confident there are no livestock nearby
  • Be sure that your dog will return to you promptly on command, and if in doubt, keep them on the lead

Find out more about teaching your dog to come when called as well as other useful advice on caring for and understanding your dog.

Worried about a farm animal?

Find out who to contact if you think a farm animal is sick or injured.


Wherever you go in the countryside there will be wildlife nearby, and even though you might not be able to see them if they’re hidden away in bushes or hedgerows, dogs can still sniff them out thanks to their fantastic sense of smell. These could be young wild animals waiting for their parents, or adults trying to keep their young safe such as ground-nesting birds sitting on eggs. Be aware of areas where wildlife might be hiding and ensure your dog doesn’t disturb them, as this could cause parents to abandon their young or be chased and seriously injured by a dog. It’s the best way to keep your dog safe too, as some wild animals can be aggressive if they’re attacked and need to defend themselves or their young.

This is important all year round, but be especially careful in the spring and summer as this is when many wild animals will be breeding and have vulnerable offspring. If you are walking your dog in an area with deer between early May and late June, watch out for newborn deer who are especially vulnerable at this time and many are killed or injured by dogs. And if you’re walking on beaches or near areas where seals will come out of the water to rest, make sure your dog is on a lead and keep at least 100 metres distance and as far away from the seals as possible to avoid disturbing them.

Dogs can also harm wildlife living in ponds, as well as being at risk themselves if they swim in some ponds – find out more from Froglife.
