The experience

Journey back to the 16th Century and England's lawless lands, as you experience a real borderland adventure. Accompanied by a local guide, you'll walk into England's largest forest and visit the places where your surname could cost you your life, and knowing the lay of the land could save it! Following your 11km (7 miles) journey you'll seek refuge at a local Coaching Inn (an 18th Century travellers’ refuge) to enjoy a hearty Mutton Pottage (lamb stew).
