Hampstead Heath/Kenwood Estate-2019

Hampstead Heath Map  kenwood house

This site supports a large percentage of Fungi to be With activities as it on my doorstep and has been part of my daily life for almost twenty years. As you will see, there are number of activies outside the walks so I urge you to be adventurous and try a workshop as well as a walk.

We have several meeting points on Hampstead Heath so I will provide you the appropriate details and map when you book. All locations are within easy reach of public transportation and have parking for drivers.

All of the walks and workshops are carried out under license and are insured by the British Mycological Society.

Hampstead Fungi walk-Saturday November 2nd

Forays begin at 10am and last for around three and half hours. In order to maintain a personal approach numbers will be limited to approximately 20 people per foray, excluding children. It is hoped that these forays will give those that attend a chance to interact with the natural environment in a responsible and respectful manner and to learn about some of the 560 species that Andy has recorded from this site.

In terms of attire,  we are walking off the beaten track in many of these walks so please have a sensible pair of walking shoes or ‘wellies’ if it’s wet weather. If it is raining I would suggest waterproof trousers as well as jackets if you have them available. Layers always work well with our unpredictable British weather too………it’s amazing how changeable the climate can be within several hours.

Bring a packed lunch or snack as we will take a break for 30 minutes or so and of course, bottled water.
