Popular Landscape Walks: are adding another date which will be on Sunday May 10th. This is due to the great success from last year of the guided walk by Peter Miles. This walk is based in Mountfield, which is not normally accessible to walkers. The main purpose of the walk is to explain how and why our High Weald landscape looks as it does. To this end, the walk will cover details of woodland archaeology, mediaeval earthworks, industrial remains such as mine pits, historic evidence of woodland crafts plus local botany including one very rare plant population and an even rarer tree, foraging (with recipes) and more. The cost is £7.50 per person and is in aid of Mountfield Church. For further information please ring Peter on 01580880614 or email pandymiles2@gmail.com
