The National Forest is one of the few places in the country that you can learn traditional woodland crafts or survival skills.

Woodland Ways, based in the beautiful grounds of Catton Hall, is a must for all those budding Ray Mears among you! The survival school courses cover a massive number of skills including how to make fire using flint or just wood, water purification, tracking, how to build shelters and identify plants and trees essential for survival in woodland – and loads more! There are also courses on specific topics such as fungi identification and surviving in marshland as well as women-only weekends.
