Whinlatter Forest Park - Forestry Commission
Braithwaite, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 5TW
Join Jo from JAG Outdoors for a night-time walk in the forest! We will cover up to 4 miles and hope for magical clear skies and many stars to explore at various points along the route. We can keep an eye out for Santa, use star maps to identify the constellations or enjoy a cloudier night with a completely different perspective. Tea, coffee, & hot chocolate will be available at the end.
Please note that this has already taken place on 07/01/2023
