Bug hunting

Our bug basement has been designed to enable our visitors to find and learn more about the insects that live on the heath.  Join an organised bug hunt or borrow a tracker pack and go exploring!

Pond dipping

We run pond dipping throughout the year - weather permitting!  We have water scorpians, water stick insects, newts and boatman.  Come and see what you can discover!


If you're lucky you could spot an adder amongst the heath. Try the birch walk if you would like to see one.
