Beauty spots remain closed in Denbighshire following the recent Welsh Government announcement on the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Loggerheads Country Park, Moel Famau Country Park and the Horseshoe Falls will remain closed for the time being with travel for exercise still restricted.

Cllr Tony Thomas, Denbighshire County Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “We understand how important these areas are to so many people and we are really keen to open these sites as soon as we can, but the situation in Wales is different to that in England.

“In Wales travel is still restricted to journeys generally within five miles from your home and we know a large proportion of our visitors travel significantly more than that. The Welsh Government has requested beauty spots and tourist spots likely to attract large numbers of people remain closed.

“In the meantime, we are working really hard with our partners to make sure when the time is right we can welcome everyone back to the parks in a way that ensures the safety of our visitors, staff and local communities.

“The advice is for residents to take exercise in their local area and to follow the social distancing guidelines. We will continue to update residents and I would like to thank you for your patience at this time.”
