Friendship Walk

This is a great opportunity to meet new people for a natter as you get active.

You are welcome to come on your own or with friends. The walk will be guided by friendly and approachable volunteers who know the estate well and will show you all the most beautiful spots.

The walk is free but entry fees apply if you are not a member. There is no need to book, just turn up.

Family Walk

Wednesday 5 June, 3:30pm - 4:30pm

Guided by our friendly volunteers, stretch your legs and socialise with other families as you uncover nature’s hidden treasures. Along the way, there will be exciting activities for you to take part in, including creating a story stick and searching for creepy-crawlies.

You can also stop off for a play in the playground at the Pavilion or Home Farm.

There will be two walk times; 3:30 and 4pm. No need to book, just show up. Entry cost for a family after 15:30 is £9.

Ancient Tree Photography Walk

Thursday 6 June, 10am - 1pm

The walk will meander through the Tyntesfield’s glorious estate taking in the majesty of these woodlands. Led by an expert in Ancient Trees, the walk will visit some of the spectacular trees that have stood on the estate through the centuries.

During our walk, we will learn how to identify these living legends, and discuss how critical they are for supporting thriving ecosystems. We will also be accompanied by a professional photographer who will provide tips and tricks for capturing these trees on a variety of devices. We hope participants might be keen to submit their photographs to the Forest of Avon’s Ancient Trees Photography competition: a project funded by the Woodland Trust. A free light lunch will be provided.

Phone cameras are perfect for the photography aspect of this event. If you don’t have access to a phone camera, contact us as we may be able to provide a camera.

As part of our commitment to welcoming more children and young people to Tyntesfield, this walk is for under 30s. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult (who could be over 30).
