Hello, are there any maps of the walks available here please? I don't want to take the kids and get run over! Thanks

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately we don't have any way-marked walking trails in Stainburn however you are welcome to walk on any of the forest roads or public rights of way that would be shown on an ordinance survey map of the area.

Hi, I was just wondering if you would consider allowing me to conduct Forest School sessions at this woodland? It would be one day a week with 15 3-4 year olds and their Parent/Carer

Hi, could you please give me the details for the chap who runs the shoot there? I have been out with them a few time but need to get in touch and have lost their contact details. Many thanks
