Wild Wood Walks
Bushcraft Experience Days.
Forest Knights believe that the British countryside should be cherished in every season. The woodland shows us a different character as the year unfolds each with its own challenges and rewards. The woods can be magical at any time as with each changing season a new charcter emgeres.
The spring gives promise of new life and the fresh spring greens to add to the table. The days begin to grow longer nd we watch the first steps of the new born wild life.
Summer gives us lots of lovely long evenings to continue praticing our skills and a chance to adapt new skills that we learnt eariler in the year. The temperature is rising and we need less equipment to stay comfortable.
Autumn is a time of plenty in the woods with lots of fresh fruit and nuts. Bright green leafty edibles abound and if we are lucky we may find a patch to mushrooms to suppliment our diet The nights are now loner and our skills our honed ready for the coming season.
The winter allows us to hone our skills and ensure that whatever the weather we can stay warm and dry. If you are not thriving in the wild then you are doing something wrong and our instructor team will help you learn new skills to really enjoy all aspects of Bushcraft and Survival.
