Join us for a storytelling walk in the woods as we explore how foresters look after the trees, wildlife and people. You’ll be led by one of the Rangers and will get to meet some of the creatures who live in the woods.

This family event is best suited to 6-10 years olds and their accompanying adult(s).

We will be walking approximstely 1km on paths which may be muddy and uneven so come wearing grippy, supportive shoes, as well as a waterproof jacket and warm layers or sunhats and suncream (depending on the weather!).

If you need help planning your outfit or need to borrow some outdoor gear then please get in touch. Please be aware there are no toilets or facilities on site.

The X4 badgerline and B2 buses drop off outside Leigh Woods.

Parking is £2 for 2 hours or £4 all day via card or Ringo.
