Fields being ploughed or harvested

Find out about responsible access on fields being ploughed or harvested.

Responsible behaviour by the public

The Access Code says:

Access rights extend to such fields but do not hinder such work. If you encounter such work while it is underway, proceed carefully, keep a safe distance and follow any advice provided by the land manager. It might be safest to go into a neighbouring field or keep to the edge of the field.

Responsible behaviour by land managers

The Access Code says:

Where necessary, tell people about the area affected and for how long, and provide an alternative route if a core path is affected. Reinstate a path that has been ploughed.
