You will be aware that this year’s Horse Fair has been re-scheduled and starts on Thursday 12th August. Warcop Parish Council, in consultation with the police and MASCG, will put in place various measures to ensure that the correct regulations are followed by our visitors.
In Warcop, only bow top caravans are permitted and no motorised caravans. There are designated places near Crooks Beck. Areas near the sheepfold, the village green and small areas opposite will be fenced off. Benches will also be removed temporarily.
In addition, following the successful 2019 trial, we will block off the layby adjacent to Crooks Beck with concrete railway sleepers to prevent motorised vehicles parking there. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience to residents.
Members of the Parish Council will meet the police at liaison meetings on the 3rd, 6th and 9th August at 12 – 1pm to discuss any issues. So if you have any concerns, please contact a member of the Parish Council, who will raise them directly with the police.
If you see any criminal or dangerous activity, please ring 101 and ask for the dedicated Horse Fair line.
