The Armitt Museum
Friday 27th October 10 am – 1 pm
Follow in the footsteps of Beatrix Potter and join us on our hunt for FUNgi. Paul Nichol, county recorder and founder of Cumbria Fungi Group, leads a guided walk through Skelghyll Wood on a fungi hunt inspired by Beatrix Potter’s incredible scientific illustrations and her passion for all things mycological. The walk will finish at the Armitt Museum with the chance to see some of Beatrix Potters’s original fungi illustrations.
The walk will start from the Stagshaw Garden car park and end at The Armitt Museum. The route through the woods involves some steep inclines, the ground may be wet and slippery and as it will be October, the weather may be cold. Please take this into consideration and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
The closest parking to Skelghyll Wood is the car park for Stagshaw Garden, National Trust; however, this car park has limited space. Other parking is available in Ambleside and at Waterhead, and there is a footpath along the lake side of the A591, which leads to Stagshaw Garden and Skelghyll Wood. Please be aware that many car parks in the area are pay and display.
