Thursday 11 November 2021

We were please to be able to hold our Remembrance Day event again. This (usually) annual event is in conjunction with pupils and staff from Bowker Vale School on the top meadow of the forest. Photos from the event will be put on a new Remembrance 2021 page soon.

Health Walks

Due to a lack of interest, we no longer hold the monthly health walks. If you are interested in walking in the forest, please contact us.

Some of the paths can be muddy or slippy so please wear appropriate footwear.
