Oxfordshire, Blenheim Estate Summer Foraging Course
Day : Sunday
Date : 05/06/2022
Time : 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm (Approx End)
Meet Point :
Due to construction work in our usual location, we are having to move the location of our Blenheim Estate foraging courses to another part of the estate, Park Farm. To get here you need to go to the Gorrel Doors Delivery Entrance.
Turn off the A44 near the Duke of Marlborough pub, following the brown Blenheim Deliveries sign on to the B4437. Where the road forks go left onto Woodstock Road, continuing to follow the Blenheim Deliveries signs.
There is a Blenheim gate at the fork but this is not the correct entrance. Instead follow the road for about half a mile until you get to a turning on the left, there is a signpost ‘Welcome to Gorrel Doors’. Go down this lane until you reach the large green metal gates. You will need to call either the Delivery Hub or Security on the intercom, tell them you are with Wild Food UK and they will let you in.
Follow the road for approx. a mile until you reach the farm yard, you need to park in the car park on the right.
At the end of the course, you will need to leave the same way you came. The gate is automated so when you reach it you just need to make sure your car is close enough for it to work and open.
Our foraging teacher will be around to meet you at 12pm.
We recommend you bring
- Comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and footwear
- A drink
- Plate, cutlery and a cup
Until the Covid-19 guidance changes we are asking that you wear a face mask on the course. Please also bring your own cup for drinks during the walk, and plate and cutlery for the meal at the end of the course.
Under 12 year olds can come for free, within reason; but please let us know how many will be coming in advance.
3:30pm is only an approximate finish time and depending on certain factors, the course could run until 4pm.
PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THE MAIN BLENHEIM PALACE ADDRESS ON THEIR WEBSITE AS THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE WRONG PLACE.
