Those visiting Denbighshire’s beauty spots to enjoy the wintry scenes are asked to respect the countryside, plan ahead and stay safe.

Denbighshire County Council and the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB are urging people to be sensible if going out to countryside beauty spots.

Visitors should be aware of what restrictions and guidelines are in place and to keep themselves and others safe. People should also check ahead to see if facilities are open and also park responsibly in designated areas.

It is also vital visitors respect the countryside and act responsibly especially with the current weather. This also means not littering, parking sensibly and only to ride bikes on routes where cycling is permitted.

All dog owners are also reminded to be responsible with their pets and to keep them on leads when walking through the countryside with livestock, particularly during lambing season.
