Due to the popularity of this event (and my love for the location!) I have included a second opportunity to join in the fun this year.
This mushroom hunt into Redisher Woods (near Ramsbottom) is a great opportunity to see some of our fascinating native fungi and learn how to identify some of the very best edible species, as well as how to differentiate from the deadlier varieties! Early Autumn is the perfect time to find these hidden wonders and you can expect to see a startling array of shapes and colours as well as learn about the remarkable medicinal properties of many of the most common species.
The walk starts at 12pm, meeting outside the Hare and Hounds pub in Holcombe Brooke (BL0 9RY). The walk will be capped off with some wild mushroom cooking at the pub and the event will wrap up around 4pm.
