Visiting Haughmond Hill updated 1 April 2021 

Visit England We're Good to Go green tick

The government has said the single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives.

The government has instructed that you should minimise time spent outside your home, minimise the number of journeys you make and only travel a short distance within your local area to exercise. Haughmond Hill's car parks and essential facilities are open for people to exercise once-per-day, if they live locally.

Please follow the government’s rules on exercising and meeting other people when considering a visit.

You must stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating.

Our facilities are  running a little differently.

Please be  aware you may need to  be  prepared to make the  necessary  decision  to  turn around  if the car park looks busy, or is full.  Please support us as we are doing  our  best  for  you:  be kind to  our  staff  and your fellow visitors.

When you  visit the nation’s forests, remember it is your responsibility to follow the new guidance on  staying safe outside your home. We are cleaning our car parking machines throughout the day but for your own safety please bring hand sanitiser with you to use after touching the machines.  

If you are uncomfortable with the idea of touching the car park payment machines, you may want to consider becoming a member. As well as supporting the forest you will receive a 12 month car park pass. Find out more.

For a quieter forest experience, we recommend planning your visit for early morning (before 10.00am) or in the evening (after 4.00pm). The forest is usually less busy on week days.
