The left hand side reads
"Thurlby Fen Slipe Nature Reserve
Fen & Wet Woodland Site of Special Scientific Interest"
and the contact details for the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

The right hand side reads
"Due to the number of dog owners ignoring our requests to pick up after their dogs and to keep their dog on a lead we are now enforcing a BAN on all dogs at this SSSI nature reserve with immediate effect.
The reserve is owned by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and there are no designated public rights of way on the reserve or on the river bank (north side of River Glen). The permissive visitor route will remain open to visitors without dogs. NO DOGS."
The Fens

The Fens, also known as the Fenland, is a naturally marshy region in eastern England. Most of the fens were drained several centuries ago, resulting in a flat, damp, low-lying agricultural region.
A fen is the local name for an individual area of marshland or former marshland and also designates the type of marsh typical of the area, which has neutral or alkaline water chemistry and relatively large quantities of dissolved minerals, but few other plant nutrients.
Fenland primarily lies around the coast of the Wash; it reaches into four counties: Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and a small area of Suffolk, as well as the historic county of Huntingdonshire. In whole it occupies an area of nearly 1,500 sq miles.
Most of the Fenland lies within a few metres of sea level. As with similar areas in the Netherlands, much of the Fenland originally consisted of fresh- or salt-water wetlands, which have been artificially drained and continue to be protected from floods by drainage banks and pumps.
