About The Walk

A circular walk 3 hours ( approx ) A walk that is immersed with local folktale..
We wander out across the old Roman Rd. Towards Herb Wood, slip through a magical doorway and drop into the liminal, resting a while under a majestic Oak tree, a very otherworldly space, where field meets hedge and wood, an in-between place.

Living breathing stories, together losing ourselves in the layers of the woodland, the layers of history , meeting the seen and unseen, the trees and their deep presence , star light , moonlight and a world within a world. 

We will slow down, rather than sped up, this walk ignites a pathway to reconnection, repair to ourselves, stories and the natural world. 

Our midsummer story weaves together such magic, Which happens also to be a full Mead Moon! so rightly so we will weave a little bit of Hedgefolk / Druidic Magic along the way. 

Sharing some folklore around the trees and plants and a little foraging too. 

I truly feel, We have a deep rich heritage of deep mystical knowledge , wisdom and direct experience that courses through our veins .
