About this event

We'll take a short guided walk of the woods, stopping to hear short interactive woodland folktales along the way. You'll have the chance to roll up your sleeves and help make hibernation stations for our most valuable residents and leave with an understanding of how our precious woods have been shaped by creatures great and small.

All ages welcome but particularly apt for those aged 5-12. Walking distance is 2km or less, rough terrain not suitable for buggies. The trail doesn't include any steps or stiles but there are lots of tree roots underfoot.

(Please be aware that we have plenty of large wood ant nests around and that they should be admired from a safe distance. If we have had wet weather there is a chance of there being a small number of mosquitos in the shade)

The duration is 1 hour and 15 minutes, all children must be accompanied by an adult. This is a free event but please book for the number of people you will be bringing.

Guided walk 14th August: 11am – 12.15pm (Slot 1) + 12.30pm – 1.45pm (Slot 2)
