Steeple Woodland - Open Day

Steeple Woodland - Foxgloves and Knill Monument

The wonderful Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve has an Open Day this weekend.

Sunday 6th September. 1.30pm onwards.
Admission is free but donations would be appreciated.

There is a whole load of good stuff to enjoy:
  • Guided nature walks.
  • Interactive green woodworking workshop.
  • Den building.
  • Rope swings.
  • Cargo nets.
  • Refreshments.
  • Live music with young musicians.
There are also free refreshments including hot drinks, juice and cakes.

You're asked not to take the car. Normally I'd disagree with such PC restrictions but in this case I agree completely - there really is very little space for parking up there. The walk up the hill is quite a nice one (if challenging !) and the walk down is a lot easier. You can get a bus from The Malakoff - number 17B leaves at 25 minutes past the hour - get off at The Cornish Arms and walk up Steeple Lane. Or you could get a taxi from the rank next to the cinema or book one with DJ Cars.

So you're invited to go along and learn more about the reserve and the wildlife.
Also to have a great afternoon out.
