Dog walking

Going for a walk whilst accompanied by your dog is one of life’s great pleasures. If you choose to do so in Nymans woods please ensure your dog is kept under close control at all times.

Dogs are welcome on a lead
Dogs are welcome on the lead

We’ve always requested dogs be kept on leads during nesting season, but it’s not just birds that can be affected by dogs on the loose. Recently, we’ve had increasing incidents of deer being fatally injured, members of the public being bitten and increased amounts of mess as well as waterside erosion at the side of the lake and ponds.

Wildlife haven

We ask all walkers to stick to the paths and keep their dogs in sight at all times. Nymans Woods is a nature reserve providing a much needed haven for wildlife and we’d like it to be enjoyed without causing damage or disturbance.
