As a sheep farmer with a large flock of sheep and lambs on our farm, we welcome these signs as many sheep and lambs are accidentally killed on the roads each year.
The ordnance survey magazine states that, "six signs are to be installed throughout the national park, in a bid to reduce the number of sheep that are killed on the area's roads. (239 sheep and lambs were killed on the Park's highways in 2008.) The signs will be solar-powered and activated by vehicles, and are at first going to be put on two roads.They will be taken away during the winter months and put back in place next spring."
I hope that these signs will help to reduce the number of sheep and lambs killed on the roads. There is nothing better than to see sheep and their lambs roaming the North York Moors and the North Yorkshire countryside.
Why not come and stay in one of our beautifully converted farm buildings and enjoy the sheep and lambs we have on our farm.
