Preserving our Countryside

A Quiet Lane is a precious resource to be enjoyed by all, so we’ve put together some advice and tips on how to best enjoy your visit to a Quiet Lane, while keeping it safe and unspoilt for everyone.

If your immediate instinct is to get in the car to travel to a Quiet Lane, why not consider walking or cycling there instead? It’s better for your health, the environment and finding suitable parking places in rural areas can be difficult. However, if you do have to drive then:

  • Be considerate where you leave your car. Try and use official parking facilities, rather than leaving it on a verge which can inconvenience locals and cause an obstruction.
  • Remember, many of the roads around a Quiet Lane will be used by large farm vehicles such as tractors and trailers. Ensure when you park that there’s enough room for them to get past easily.
  • Only use passing places for what they’re intended for - never park in them!
  • The same goes for entrances to fields, you should consider these as constantly in use.
  • Leave nothing behind. We want to keep our Quiet Lanes as unspoilt as possible so please take any rubbish home with you.
  • Don’t forget to follow the Countryside Code.
