As we move into August, extreme weather patterns are only just beginning to die down at last in many parts of the country, following both heatwave temperatures and record-setting summer rainfall throughout a rather turbulent June and July period.
Want to do more this summer? Follow our free Get Outdoors For Summer guide. Today we’re wandering through the UK’s best woodlands – the perfect places to discover the magic of nature and our wonderful wildlife.
There are also secrets to be uncovered. For example, did you know a ‘walking tree’ is born when the trunk’s middle becomes so rotten the tree falls over . . . but it re-roots and grows again?
At Greenbelt, we’re crazy about conservation, maintaining hundreds of woodlands, wildlife corridors and biodiversity-promoting wildflower meadows… but did you know that we also look after more than 100 designated listed buildings, historic locations and certified Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)?
Our Get Outdoors For Summer guide continues today with a look at hills that are family friendly. These are peaks that offer incredible panoramic views and a wonderful sense of achievement yet are perfect for beginners and youngsters.
So get your hiking boots and sun lotion on and pack your water and picnic . . . here’s the Greenbelt Guide to Easy Hill Walks.
