Extracts from this document...


Conflicts tourism brings to Castleton. Tourism in Castleton causes many conflicts. These conflicts occur between different groups of people, who want different things from the honeypot. The main conflicts, which occur in Castleton due to tourism is that between the locals and tourists. One of the biggest reasons that cause conflicts between the locals and tourist is because of the traffic. Because of the great numbers of tourists that come Castleton cause a great deal of traffic congestions along the villages roads most of which are narrow. This tourist traffic contributes a lot to the level of noise and pollution in the area. Another conflict linked with the tourist traffic is that some of the tourists park cars in inconvenient places, and by this they block driveways and narrow roads causing problems for the locals. ...read more.

This wastes a lot of the farmers time and may even cost them money. A final conflict that occurs between farmers and the tourists is the fact tourists often stroll through fields with their dogs. If their dogs are off their lead they will chase the sheep.
