A lovely varied family stroll through woods, hedgerows, open fields and a nuttery. The walk will take in Smallcombe Woods and Bathwick Fields, with some spectacular views across Bath. It will be led by Forest School Leader and local Outdoor Learning facilitator Zosia Brett who regularly takes children to this area.

There will be fun activities and little nature crafts for the children to make and do along the walk plus lots of opportunities to stop and explore. Being early Autumn, there should also be a chance for some fun foraging.

Stay and have a picnic lunch on Bathwick Fields with its beautiful views over Bath (please bring your own picnic).
