PWDRA - Woodland Walks

A series of themed walks at the National Trust Petts Wood and

Hawkwood Estate.

This programme of walks will be publicised in The Gazette and on PWDRA
website and Facebook page. 

Kindly no dogs please.

Unfortunately there will need to be a limit of circa fifteen people attending each walk. This will be accepted on a first come first served basis. See below for how to reserve you spot.


Do wear sturdy footwear and use walking poles, if necessary, as the woodland floor can be uneven and sometimes muddy. If the weather is very wet the walk may be cancelled at short
notice! If so, we shall call or text you on the day.

Please see below for how to request a spot.
