Habitat walk

Activity: Habitat walk

Anglesey I Beeston I Delamere I Burwardsley

A walk in the woods looking at animal habitats and homes, such as squirrel dreys and badger setts, and other points of interest, as well as developing the skills necessary to tackle streams, mud, steep hills and other ‘obstacles’.

At Delamere, the whole of the forest is at our disposal with multiple streams to cross.

At Burwardsley we can walk over Bulkeley Hill and hear the story of the witches, or for a shorter walk we can climb Willow Hill right next to the centre and build dens or jungle camps on top.

At Beeston we can climb see the Witches House and climb the Witches steps, so be ready for a story.
