'One thus gone', eight small inspirations for woodland walking.

‘One thus gone’ is a series of short poems, written specifically for Hardcastle Crags. The poems are designed to guide you on a mindful and contemplative journey along a woodland trail.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

We have been working in partnership with the University of Huddersfield to explore different ways to look at and experience the woodland. Deborah Templeton, a freelance writer and director of the Mindfulness and Performance Project at the University of Huddersfield, said "Spending time amongst trees is such a great way to slow down and tap into our reservoirs of natural wellbeing - but sometimes we need a little help in shifting gears!"

The basics

Suitability
Dogs on leads are welcome.
Meeting point
Take the Estate track for about a 1/3 of a mile, there will be a large clearing to your left and you will see the first poem on your right-hand side.
What to bring and wear
Dress for the outdoors and wear appropriate footwear. It can get muddy on the tracks.
