Bear in mind that Kelston Roundhill is not a municipal park; it’s a working farm, partly open to walkers. This entails a broad risk of possible risks. For example
- falls from uneven ground
- falling branches
- trip hazards
- barbed wire, gates
- nettles, brambles, other plants
- ticks, wasps, other insect bites
- farm livestock: cows, sheep
- wild animals
The barn is off grid. The private water supply and electrical services are regularly serviced and checked but there is the possibility of contamination or electrical or mechanical malfunction.
While there is no right of way past the Old Barn the possibility of people walking past without permission cannot be ruled out. Kelston Clump is permissive paths and is open to walkers. Dogs are not encouraged but there is the risk of inadequately controlled dogs.
Farm workers may drive past as a normal part of their farm work.
Please feel free to reuse and recycle these sample risk assessments. If you have more please share.
