Family Forage

Sunday 22nd May, 2022

Family Forage

A family-based (although everyone is welcome) activity walk. We will walk up from Trefriw past the Fairy Falls, following the Afon Crafnant into the beautiful bluebell-filled fields and woods of the Crafnant valley, where amongst many other things we will scavenger hunt, forage for wild food (your chance to munch on ramsons and dine on pignut pie), hug a tree or two, play environmental games and enjoy ourselves. The exact structure of the day and the focus of the activities will depend on the group demographics … and the weather.

Duration: about 5 hours.   Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  3 miles / km

Grade:  Easy/leisurely. The walk will not be strenuous and will mostly follow good paths, but at times we will move away from paths and tracks onto rougher ground so suitable footwear is required.

Departure time:  11:00 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
Refreshments will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk. (More here.)

Walk Leaders:  Pete Kay and Marianne Siddorn

Wildflower Wisdom

Wildflower Wisdom

Plants have evolved their own ways of combatting danger and disease. Our ancestors learnt how to make use of these attributes long before the discovery of antibiotics. Find out how the plants that grow in the Crafnant valley were essential to previous generations of villagers in their everyday lives. This is an opportunity to discover more about the history of the village as well.

A leisurely walk through the woodlands and meadows famous for bluebells and other spring flowers.  Most of the walk is through fields or on good tracks. (There is one stile.)

Duration:  Half day, starting late morning .  Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  About 4 miles / 6.5 km

Grade:  Easy, and at a leisurely pace

Departure time:  11:30 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
(This will be convenient for anyone arriving by bus to Trefriw.)
