The Nidd Gorge Conservation Group  (NGCG) have devoted years of time and effort to develop the permissive pathways, plant saplings and generally make the area a superb place to enjoy nature.

The organisation, fully support the endeavours of the NGCG and have committed to leave the venue as we found it. With your cooperation and a little help from mother nature we can enjoy the venue in years to come.

We ask the following:

  • Take your litter home with you. Pick up litter, even if it’s not yours.
  • Spectators please respect any taped off areas where tree saplings have been planted.
  • Avoid climbing on fences.
  • Report any damage to the organisation so we can make good.
  • If using on street parking do not obstruct driveways.
  • Expect the commissaires to enforce regulations re bringing the sport into disrepute (urination, foul language etc).
  • Treat other park users and cyclists on the Beryl Burton Cycleway with respect.
  • Do not cycle other than the marked course or Beryl Burton Cycleway.
  • Tell all your friends what a lovely day out Knaresborough is!
