Hiya, We had a lovely walk today in the woods, but there was a bit of confusion due to the coloured signposts being quite sparse, some were fallen and dumped in the grass...Also some are at a crossroads along the walk, so you're not sure which way to go...we turned off at the wrong point...I realise that most people visiting the woods will know the walks, bit we are newish and so it was a bit confusing...I really hope you will have the walks marked more clearly the next we visit...other than that, we loved it :)

Hi Fiona, so glad you enjoyed your walk. The issue with the posts has been noted and the work is programmed in to start in the Spring. Hopefully this will solve the problem for you and allow you to enjoy the wood fully. Thanks for your comment.

will there be another foraging event?

We will be doing another Fungus Forage walk next October. This event was very popular this year, so I would suggest booking early.

Attended the fungus foray this weekend. First time to the lovely chambers farm wood. Was a very interesting two hours although may I suggest there be a limit to the group size and the organizer and fungi enthusiast be a little clearer on the expectations and content of the two hour foray maybe? I learnt alot and found it very enjoyable and interesting once the group had dispersed to single figures. Made me route one of my books out and go and look what is out there. Thanks for the experience :)
