Free guided walk at Wild Ken Hill!
Join us on Saturday 28th January for a free guided walk at Wild Ken Hill to discover the farm’s work around regenerative farming and rewilding.
Wild Ken Hill, located in West Norfolk stretches from the sea through coastal scrub, freshwater marshes, heathland, wood pasture to nature-rich farmland. Wild Ken Hill which featured in many episodes of BBC’s Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch uses rewilding, regenerative farming, and traditional conservation practices side-by-side in a unique, innovative approach. An incredible 2,500 species and counting have been recorded at the reserve!
Discover what the nature has to offer with Wild Ken Hill’s experienced and knowledgeable guides. You will learn about the rewilding area, where you will see the work done by the grazing animals (pigs, ponies and cattle) and beavers, to create a natural habitat. You will also observe birds that are spending the season on the marshes and in the woodland. Each area of Wild Ken Hill (woodland, marshes, fields) provides a habitat for flora and fauna, which you will learn about during your tour.
Tours will begin with light refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits), before heading out for a 2 to 2.5 hours walk around the Estate, with the same refreshments available on the return.
Saturday 28th January 10:00am – 12:30pm

Please note that although the walk is inclusive, the walk is not wheelchair friendly due to the nature of the environment and land. People with walking difficulties may find the terrain difficult in winter, particularly following heavy rain. The walk will cover approximately 1.5 to 2.5 miles.
