Meadows to Morris Dancing

10th June 2019

Tramper Taster Day - May 2019 (Forest of Bowland National Landscape)Festival Bowland is packed with events to help you explore and enjoy the Forest of Bowland National Landscape.

Wyre rangers and the River Wyre Partnership team will be out and about clearing Himalayan balsam on the 18th and 19th June. Why not join them in the upper reaches of the catchment to give them a hand and enjoy a brew and a biscuit afterwards?

Bowland Active Naturalists and the Friends of Bowland have two Wildlife Wanders to choose from – the first in Gisburn Forest on Saturday 22nd June and the second around the Cross of Greet Bridge on the 20th July. A chance to learn a little from those who know a little at an easy pace.

Explore Churn Clough reservoir and the farmland around Sabden on a guided walk with the Ribble Rivers Trust on Saturday 22nd June then head across the National Landscape to Tatham on Sunday 30th for Clearbeck open garden – "A surprise round every corner" according to visitors. The garden has its last opening for 2019 on Sunday 7th July.

Bell Sykes Farm in Slaidburn - Lancashire's Coronation Meadow – will be welcoming visitors for this year's National Meadows Day celebrations on Saturday 6th July.  See traditional hay making techniques, watch woodcraft and spinning demonstrations, learn about the traditional uses of meadow plants and take a guided walk amongst the species-rich meadows on the farm.

Malkin Morris (2018)The following weekend - Saturday 13th - sees Morris teams, including locally based Malkin Morris, dance in Barley and Roughlee. There may even be a chance to try out some steps yourself!

And those who love the outdoors, but can't walk as far as they used to, can take a guided trek on a four-wheel drive Tramper mobility scooter in the picturesque parish of Nether Wyresdale on July 18th when the Wyre rangers have special permission to explore the tracks around Foxhouses lakes near Scorton.

Full information and booking details for all these events and more are available on the Forest of Bowland National Landscape website at
