Event Details


Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

Sorry to report that this walk on the 20th June 2021 has been cancelled. Hope to rearrange at a later date.

The start time is 11.00 am for a nine  mile walk 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.

Terrain / Difficulty

A flat walk, NO inclines – just one set of 12 steps but is wet and muddy in a few places, So make sure your boots are waterproof.

Approximate Distance

9 miles
