Accessibility Statement

This statement covers our website at

This website is run by Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs National Landscape (AONB).

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. In 2020 we substantially revised our website to realise this goal.

That means you should now be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts (we provide basic tools for you to do this)
  • Zoom in up to 250% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader. We have tested this with NVDA.
  • We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Cranborne Chase AONB is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
