To ensure that this sensitive area is conserved for the future, please respect the wildlife and observe the following;
For your own safety. please beware of sudden drops, quarries, cliff edges, bunker entrances

I particularly like the phrase "Considerate pedestrians only" but am disappointed by the unnecessary apostrophe in BBQs and the mis-spelling horror of bridal for bridle.
