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.

Walkers on the Moors!

The Trust is currently reviewing their rules in respect of dog walking, with the aim of making the green spaces an enjoyable experience for everyone, including dogs and their owners.  We look forward to seeing many people enjoying themselves in the coming months so please let us know what you think.  Click on the link to take part in an online survey:
