New volunteer led guided walks programme at Hackfall

Yesterday saw the launch of our new volunteer led guided walks programme at Hackfall. A huge thanks to Paul Randall and Tom Richardson, two of our new guided walk leaders, who led the walk.

Hackfall sits just outside the village of Grewelthorpe in North Yorkshire.  The beautiful woodland landscape were hugely popular in Victorian times, incorporating man made features including grottoes, surprise views waterfalls and a fountain. After a period of decline, in the 1980s, the Woodland Trust and the newly formed Hackfall Trust came to the rescue, followed in 2007  by a major restoration project funded by HLF.  Hackfall is now a Grade 1 listed garden.

Guided walk participants were treated to a fabulous walk in the sunshine through the wood, stopping to admire the stunning bluebells and learn about the unique history and features of the site.

Our guided walk leaders will be continuing with a programme of walks throughout the year. To find our more and book your place please visit our events page on the main Woodland Trust website.
