Autumn at Longshaw
The woods and moors of Longshaw provide the perfect place for autumn adventures.
Try something new
If you’re looking for a good route to try out or a new way to get fit, Longshaw offers routes on a postcard in the shop, an orienteering course and map, regular Thursday evening running sessions, the monthly Trust10 Sunday morning run and monthly Nordic walks with qualified instructors.
Don’t forget, the twice weekly Sunday and Wednesday guided walks continue throughout the year, taking you to the further corners of Longshaw and the surrounding moors where you may not have been before. It’s always a friendly sociable walk, with snippets of interesting information thrown in along the way. Meet the leaders outside the café at 11a.m.
Nature's autumnal highlights
Wherever you walk around Longshaw, you’re sure to see something fascinating and throughout autumn, keep a look out for the wide variety of fungi on the ground and the red deer roving on the moors. We’ve created two downloadable walks for you to try, to make the most of what there is to see throughout autumn. Scroll to the bottom to find them.
A helping hand
Whilst you are out around Longshaw, you can help woodland wildlife by gathering acorns and rowan berries which have already dropped on the ground. Leave them in the bucket by the green welcome shed and we’ll plant them in pots. Once they’ve grown into saplings they’ll be planted out in the cloughs of the High Peak moors as part of our 50 year vision to restore woodland to the area. To help even further why not come along to the monthly Muck In Days and join the rangers collecting and planting seeds?
