Upcoming events

Here we come a-wassailing

Fri 17 Jan 2020
Come join in some noisy orchard-wassailing revelry at Swan Barn Farm. Make some noise to ward off evil spirits from the orchards for a bumper crop of apples in the autumn - and a bountiful supply of cider.

Join the team 

There's always something to do behind the scenes at Black Down and we wouldn't be able to get it all done without our fantastic team of volunteers. There are many volunteering opportunities to choose from and we always welcome new members to our friendly team.
