After a recent incident where a walker was injured by a cow that had become separated from it’s calf (although unbeknown by the walker) please be aware of the risks when walking through a field of farm animals. If you are unsure of your safety consult your map and find an alternative route. The advice from the Government’s website about the Countryside Code states,

It’s always good practice (and a legal requirement on ‘open access’ land) to keep your dog on a lead around farm animals and horses, for your own safety and for the welfare of the animals. A farmer may shoot a dog which is attacking or chasing farm animals without being liable to compensate the dog’s owner.

However, if cattle or horses chase you and your dog, it is safer to let your dog off the lead – don’t risk getting hurt by trying to protect it. Your dog will be much safer if you let it run away from a farm animal in these circumstances and so will you.’

However, this contract ends in 2020 and the council is beginning the process of tendering for a new contract to commence in August 2020. This process involves the district council investigating a range of potential service options.

The works to refurbish the pelicon crossing are due to take place w/c 28.8.18, and will involve replacement of the 2 signal poles and equipment, and also the relocation of the controller cabinet to be nearer the kerb. A stone has been retained from the refurbishment work of the Heart of Hathersage for putting in place when the grey control box is moved.

One definition of a pelicon (Pedestrian Light Controlled) crossing and puffin crossing can be found here.
