Visiting the Moors

Come and discover for yourself the stunning heather covered moorlands, especially in August and September when in full purple bloom.

The ‘Right of Access to Open Country’ welcomes walkers to “mountain, moor, registered common land, heath and down” and a great deal of work has been done in recent years to ensure access to the moors for people all abilities.

And with our rights, come responsibilities – naturally.

The moorland landscape may look wild and free but it is owned and managed by a wide variety of individuals and organisations.

Follow the Moorland Code to ensure that you have a safe and 'moorcare-full' visit.
