The annual walk to Thynghowe takes place on Saturday April 20th. This event is inspired by the perambulations of the Lordship of Warsop as recorded in the document from 1816 that influences much of our work. The walk will start at 10am and progress will be slow as we will pause to hear accounts of past events in the woodlands. There are many stories to tell including tales of ancient stones, the influence of the Dukes of Portland, the legacy of World War II and Viking age assemblies from a thousand years ago. We also take in the wildlife and plants and reflect on the impact of changes in woodland management over the years.
The walk to Thynghowe and back is about 3 miles and should take between 3 and 4 hours.
This event is free and suitable for active folk of all ages. Young people under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. There are no toilet facilities in the Forest (but plenty of trees!).
You will need waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear. Bring a packed lunch and a drink.
If you would like to come along please book your place by contacting the Greenwood Community Forest Team by email on email@example.com or by phoning 0115 9696518 or 07740 845574.
