The walks below are specially designed for Home-Educating young people 8 to 14 years old and their partners in education. The stories will make pictures in your head which you can draw in a sketchbook provided for the event. Learn about the sites, their flora, fauna, industrial history and even fascinating facts about foraging.
Numbers are strictly limited and pre-booking is essential. Tickets will be available to book on eventbrite two weeks prior to events taking place. The event will comply with government guidelines and health and safety guidance will be emailed on booking.
These events are Lottery Funded by Arts Council England with support from Shropshire Council and Energize Shropshire Telford and Wrekin.
