Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
A number of sections of this walk pass through fields containing livestock. Always look out for animals when entering a field. Keep your distance from the animals and remember to close gates after you.
