Multiple Dates

One for the Rook

Actions and Detail Panel

Event description
O4tR will be an experience like none other. A 1 ½ miles walk in wild woods, marshes & river Meditating Quietly as you go.

About this event

‘One or the Rook’ is an acknowledgement and celebration of the wild world around us, the creatures, plants and insects which are our neighbours. We follow in the footsteps of those beautiful and influential books, ‘Lost Words’ and ‘Lost Spells’ written by Robert Macfarlane and illustrated by Jackie Morris. Although ‘following’ it is very much our own pathway.

The event is a ‘trail’ of about 1 ½ miles in the countryside around the village of Bergh Apton taking about two hours. There are a dozen ‘Stop, Look & Listen’ halts, some with music and words and, to keep your wits sharp, there is a cunning puzzle to solve, with prizes.

Please take the ‘Trail’ quietly, contemplatively, meditatively.

BOOKING: Groups of 6 are invited to arrive at 20-minute intervals. You may either form your own Group, start or join another Group. Please select Day & Time of your arrival and the Number in Group. If your preferred time has already been booked, please select an alternative. Early booking is recommended - tickets are limited.

Telephone Enquiries: 01508 480-696

Returns: Once purchased, we regret refunds will not be possible. (We may be able to assist with selling returns.)

The Trail will go ahead come wind, come weather, so bad weather will not be a cause for cancellation or ticket refunds.

In the event a further Covid Lockdown results in postponement of O4tR, alternative dates will be offered or refunds made.

Mobile: Remember to bring your mobile smartphone. Please have on silent until you have passed through the Portal. If you do not have a smartphone, you can listen as a group. Whilst the music will require a phone, readings will be displayed at each Halt.

QR Codes: The trail uses QR codes to access readings and music via your smartphone, which should be with IOS.11 or later (or Android 11) upgrade. Prior to your arrival download a QR Code reader app (lots of options on the Internet). In ‘Camera’ settings, ‘Scan QR Codes’ must be set at GREEN (on’). To access recordings, scan password protected QR codes to be found around the Trail. Per Group only one smartphone is needed, to which all can listen.

Terrain: Most of the O4tR Trail will take place over rough ground; overhanging branches & roots create hidden obstacles or hazards. Ground may be marshy & wet; plus a steep bank with steps. We cannot accept responsibility for accidents where due care and attention has not been paid to the conditions. Bear in mind that nature does its own thing.

Wheelchairs: We regret that wheelchair use will not be possible, owing to the rough terrain.

Covid: All visitors must observe whatever Covid restrictions are in place at the time.

Confirmation: You will be sent a receipt which will be your Ticket with arrival directions.

To get you into the right frame of mind for One for the Rook read the short story you will receive with your ticket. It is about the Elder Tree Mother and is based on an ancient belief concerned with elder trees.
