Join Jo from JAG Outdoors for a guided walk around the forest at night.
The walk will cover 3-4 miles of trails, and weather permitting, there will be stops for some amazing star gazing opportunities. As an amateur astronomer Jo help you have some fun finding the major constellations and will have star maps and guides on hand.
Please be aware the route will be on a range of surfaces and may be wet and muddy. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear

You may want to bring a flask of warm drink and maybe a snack, especially if bringing children. Children under 12 must be within reach of their responsible appropriate adult at all times, older children must have an over 18 on site for the event.
