WALK CANCELLED DUE TO BAD WEATHER FORECAST

This circular walk will encompass The Warren and Bald Hill as we meet the sheep and learn how they, and other management tools, keep the grassland in good condition. Whilst watching the Red Kites dive over the site, we’ll learn about their reintroduction; why our Junipers are so special; how we’ve addressed Ash die-back on site, and why we love our yellow meadow ants! We’ll top the walk off with tea and cake, over-looking the magnificent AONB.
