Informal Learning

There are plenty of opportunities for informal lifelong learning on the Trust Land.

Copies of our Orange, Green, Red and Blue Walks are available from this website and from the Box Moor Trust Centre. These provide information on the points of interest around these routes.

Families and Children

‘I-Spy’ Sheets: Seasonal sheets for children to use on the Orange Walk route are available online and at the Old Barn Education Centre.

Summer Family Activity Walks: Themed circular walks, starting and finishing at the car park by the Old Barn Education Centre. These take families through Hay Wood and its surrounding meadows, with suggested activities at points along the way. Copies are available online and at the Box Moor Trust Centre.

Bovingdon Brickworks Activity Walk: A walk highlighting aspects of the site’s natural history and past uses. Copies are available online.

Bug Bags: Why not hire one of our bug finding activity bags and go on your very own adventure through the fields and into the woodlands to discover the wonderful world of insects?  Bug Bags are available to hire for the day from the Trust Centre – we require a £10 cash deposit that will be refunded on return of the bag.

Activity days and sessions for families are held during the school holidays, with seasonal crafts and outdoor activities suitable for children up to 11 years. Children’s activities are also available at Trust events, including the Boxmoor Food & Craft Festival and Lambing Weekend.
