Down to Earth Bushcraft, based in Dorset, promotes high quality training in bushcraft, wilderness survival skills and nature awareness.
Transition Town BH is joining with Down to Earth Bushcraft to present a Wild food walk near Studland, Isle of Purbeck.
We’ll start off from the Bankes Arms pub in Studland at 11am and meander along the cliff tops and through some woodland to Old Harry’s Rocks, stopping to sample some of Mother Nature’s autumnal bounties. We’ll keep it fairly fluid but will stop for lunch (bring your own) and aim to return to the pub by about 3 o’clock where those who want to can relax and have a drink.
It’s not compulsory, but feel free to join the bike convoy...
The Bike convoy:
We’ll be taking things at a leisurely pace so no one will get left behind- it’s about 7 miles return from the other side of the chain ferry with a couple of fairly gentle hills. Please also bring a lock and hi-vis clothing if you have.
It seems there is a bus running to Studland after all- although it is a reduced timetable from the summer: http://www.morebus.co.uk/service.shtml?serviceid=1563

9.30 outside Branksome Chine beach station.
10.00 at the the chain ferry in anticipation of catching the 10.20 crossing. Please be on time as we cannot wait around too long.
