Forthcoming events are listed below. You can also book a place for a walk or other even from this page, or visit our events listings site.


All walks start at the East entrance to the wood, on Creighton Avenue, opposite Fortismere School (N10 1NT). Most last about 2 hours. 

Walks are free, though a donation of £3 per person is appreciated. It helps to book in advance as this allows us gauge numbers and to contact you if there are any changes to the programme.
