Workshops and events

Guided walks

Please note: Guided walks are currently suspended due to ongoing felling operations. It is hoped that the art trail will be reinstated in Spring 2017.
Linda takes groups for guided walks around the Art walk in Salcey Forest. She also occasionally takes groups on nightwalks where the sculptures take on a new aspect as they eerily appear in the torchlight (and when we're really lucky, moonlight). For details of the next guided walk, contact Linda.
