Rucksack Walks

Fancy an adventure?  If you enjoy exploring outside then you might like to try one of our Rucksack Walks.

What is it?  A rucksack walk is a self guided walk with themed activities to do as you go.  There are currently two themes to choose from:     ~ Senses Walk ~       ~ Natural Art Trail ~

What's in the bag?  In the rucksack there are 4 sets of activities to do, with instructions and the items you need to complete each activity.  There is a map card with a suggested route and locations to do each activity.  The rucksack has enough equipment for up to 6 people to do the activities together.

Where can I borrow one from?  The rucksacks are available from the Box Moor Trust Centre on London Road.  You will need to leave a small refundable cash deposit to borrow the bag of equipment.

The Trust is very lucky to have naturalist and skilled wildlife photographer Lucy Flower as a volunteer.  Read her fascinating blog on the Box Moor Trust estate here:

After years of holding our annual public meeting at various venues around the area of benefit, we are excited to be able to host our 2014 meeting at our new headquarters.  You are cordially invited to attend at 7pm on Thursday 24th April at the Box Moor Trust Centre in London Road to find out what has been happening during the past year and hear about future projects.  You will be able to meet Trustees and staff, enjoy some light refreshments and get a chance to have a look around our beautiful new building.  For those who do not wish, or are unable, to join us for the formal part of the evening, we will be opening our doors for an informal "meet and greet" from 2pm onwards, so feel free to drop in and see us.alt
