Message to Dog Owners

A closeup of the dogs on leads signs.

Please remember that the footpath from Crickhowell to Llangattock through the Glebe Field (opposite Crickhowell Bridge) cuts through grazing land. This is not a dog exercise area, and the entrance is clearly marked with signs asking you to keep your dogs on a lead and to clean up after them.

The ‘Dogs on Leads’ rule applies whether or not there is livestock in the field as dog faeces can be harmful to farm animals and humans and the bacteria in the faeces can infect the land.

dogs on leads

The gates are marked with "dogs on leads" signs.

Many responsible owners abide by this rule but, if the situation does not improve, Llangattock Community Council, who own the land, will consider measures to enforce it. These could even include fencing-off the footpath to keep dogs off the grazing land, as has happened in the neighbouring field. Thank you.

The council may have to consider fencing the footpath through the field.
