Mires Beck Woodland Walk
Our woodland is young having only had 30 years so far to mature and there is still a lot of new undergrowth being planted this year as part of the ongoing management. It is however magical and lovely to walk and to listen and spot the birds nesting here and around the local waters. We train our service users about the variety of trees and what fruits for wildlife they produce. Our teams learn about tree health and about the bugs which feed in the undergrowth and we have activities on public event open days for people to learn from the fact sheets.
We need constant volunteer support to help take care of this peaceful walk, which we are also working together with local health professionals to offer people as a means to recovery from illness. The wood is open for service users during the week and for local community for based activities at other times.
Our woodland is a peaceful environment for our service users and we are now working with local children’s activity groups during school breaks to experience the nature of the wood. We are also working with wellness therapists to hold Mindfulness walks and other holistic activities in and around the woodland. Please visit the What’s On page or Contact Us for information.
