Our Groups are up and running with their activities.   While there is generally no fixed maximum number of participants on an event, an event may have a limit in place based on it's risk assessment.   All events still require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

The start time is 11.00 am for a special flat nine mile Wander around a nature reserve straddling the borders of England and Wales. The reserve consists of 2000 acres of raised bog. A rare landscape brought into being by the growth of sphagnum mosses that trap and hold rainwater. An area undisturbed for 10,000 years after the last Ice Age, but brought to a blackened desert after  drainage and peat harvesting on a massive scale. In the 19th and 20th centuries.  Since then the work of conservationists and volunteers have restored the vegetation and encouraged wild life. A chance to walk in a unique environment, with hopefully sights of wetland birds and rare wild flowers.  Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads.
