Survival Bushcraft and Wilderness Skills

Serious Outdoor Skills are now running activity days for children and youths.

We teach survival bushcraft and wilderness skills and have designed one day events for children and youth groups. These day events are a great way for young people to learn some great new skills, build their confidence and meet new friends.

Serious Outdoor Skills aim to deliver a really enjoyable and interesting day out in the great outdoors. Included in the events there will be sessions in shelter building, fire lighting, nature awareness, damper bread making on an open fire and other exciting and fun activities. Serious Outdoor Skills believe that it is important for young people to get outside and enjoy the wilderness and nature.

Anne of Cleves House

The oldest part of this lovely timber-framed house was built in the fifteenth century. Later it was given to Henry VIII’s fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, in her divorce settlement.

Parts are in period furnishings. Galleries tell the story of Lewes from fifteenth century to modern times, the role of local resident Tom Paine, the Lewes Bonfire traditions and the important Wealden iron industry. There are also displays of everyday domestic objects and children’s toys.

The enclosed garden gives a feeling of stepping back into an earlier age and will be the venue for a delightful Tudor Fair in October.

River Lee Country Park

Stretching between Waltham Abbey in Essex and Broxbourne in Hertfordshire this 1,000 acre park has been transformed from old gravel pits to an inspiring country park for all the family to enjoy.

There’s miles of surfaced pathways making it the ideal place to enjoy an invigorating walk or cycle ride (cycle hire available) amongst picturesque surroundings. You can hop on an electric pleasure boat, pedalo or rowing boat at Lee Valley Boat Centre and navigate the River Lee, let the kids go wild in miles of open space while sitting back and watching the wildlife go by, or simply relax and unwind with a picnic.

If you’re an adrenalin enthusiast, a trip to the brand new Lee Valley White Water Centre (host to the London 2012 Canoe Slalom events) is a must. Whether you fancy riding the rapids yourself, or simply want to watch the action from the café terrace, it’s well worth a trip!

Car parks: Fishers Green car park, Stubbins Hall Lane, Crooked Mile, Waltham Abbey, Essex, EN9 2EF (no public transport)
