Wrap up warm and experience an exhilarating ‘Walk on the Dark Side’ in the Chiltern Hills! Our after dark exploration starts out from the Bottle & Glass Inn at Binfield Heath to discover the night-time world of Bones Wood and Crowsley Park. The walk will be approximately 2 hrs duration. We will take time to tune into the sights and sounds of the night and may get to see and hear owls, deer, and more (keep a lookout for the Hound of the Baskervilles!).

If the weather is kind and the sky is clear, we may also get to see some shooting stars from the Orionid meteor shower! We return to the pub in time to settle down in the garden with a hot drink for some shooting stargazing (weather permitting). Don’t forget to bring a good torch (a head torch is ideal)!
