Sunday 6th and 13th April 2014
10.30 am, Mountfield Village Hall
This is a rare opportunity to explore an area of our special part of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is off any public paths and normally inaccessible. This has been made possible by kind permission of Lucinda and Simon Fraser. The walk will be led by Peter Miles. The walk will include mines, mine pits, quarries and other industrial archæology; the remains of a 13thC fortified manor and other mediæval earthworks; Roman and mediæval trackways; the botany of ancient woodland including a rare plant population; tree lore and meetings with some remarkable trees; practical foraging; and much more.
Numbers are limited for both dates so first come, first served. Places are free to DACS members and, if numbers allow, you may bring guests for £5.00 p.p. or full membership. Children welcome — no cost. Dogs on leads at all times.
Meet Mountfield Village Hall to leave 10.30ish. Free parking. Walk time 1.5 to 2 hours. Distance only about 2 miles but at points it is brambly, muddy and slippery so dress accordingly. Sign up now…To book, email Peter (email@example.com) or call 01580 880614 (evenings).
