Steve England Outdoor Learning

On this journey of discovery of Oldbury Court Estate, we will explore multiple habitats and the plants that grow in them, and learn the fascinating facts and practical uses of plants and trees around the Estate and valley.
We will look at the range of trees and plants that live on the Estate, that can be used for food, woodcraft, medicines and fire. Learn about which plants can be used as a wound dressing and antiseptic, trees are best suited to make walking thumbsticks, and practical uses of hard and soft woods. We will also identify edible and poisonous lookalikes, and sample some of the edibles along the way.
Walk distance – around 2 miles (circular), on uneven ground.

Cancellation/Postponing due to Poor Weather
SE Outdoor Learning events take place outdoors, and therefore unfortunately we may need to be postponed or cancelled in the days leading up to the event if it seems that the weather will be too poor for it to be run safely. We will always aim to confirm cancellation of the event 24 – 48 hours in advance (though on very rare occassions, sudden weather changes may mean its closer than this). Please keep an eye on your emails and Facebook for information regarding this. If you cannot make the postponed date, please request a refund and we will be able to issue this for you asap.
