Provided you, or someone in your household, are not displaying symptoms of Covid 19, current advice is that it is safe for you to go outside for exercise once a day, so long as you: • Do not travel – exercise outside close to your home • Go alone or with members of your household - Keep 2 metres / 6½ feet from others at all times • Be vigilant with hand washing and hygiene – Be aware that gates, stiles and other outdoor structures are touched regularly

Do not undertake new or risky activities – Stay safe during this time of increased burden on our emergency and health services. And follow the Countryside Code - consider farmers and others who are working hard to keep our shelves stocked and infrastructure running.

Please also be aware that following Storm Dennis & Storm Ciara many of our walks are not in good condition and some have missing bridges, so take care.

From national trails such as the Wales Coast Path and Offa's Dyke trail, to small circular walks you can complete in a couple of hours, Monmouthshire is a great destination for walking. Go on a foodie town trail, or scale a mountain in the Brecon Beacons. Whatever type of walk you want, we will have you covered.
