Visitors are welcome back to nature at Wild Ken Hill
Wild Ken Hill in coastal West Norfolk has launched a new set of guided tours giving people a chance to enjoy its glorious countryside and learn about its modern approach to rewilding, regenerative farming and conservation.
There are 14 different tours on offer designed to suit age groups from small children and families right up to seasoned experts.
Dominic Buscall, project manager, said: "We are excited to welcome visitors into this special place. We have carefully designed the tours to offer fun, unique, and inclusive experiences in nature so there should be something for everyone. We have a great group of inspiring and experienced guides ready to show our visitors around the beautiful landscape and pointing out some of the 2,600-plus species that we see here and explaining the work we do."
Wild Ken Hill is a 4,000 acre farm near Heacham, which is radically transforming the way land is used by handing back areas to nature, by regenerative farming and using traditional conservation techniques in harmony with each other.
The Big Picture tour explores farmland, woodland, and the new rewilding area, offering visitors a chance to learn about Wild Ken Hill’s overall approach. There is also a family version of The Big Picture - a fun learning journey with lots of interaction, digging for earthworms and finding out more about the micro beasts that live in the leaf litter and decaying trees.
Rewilding in Practice which will delve deeper into ‘rewilding’, explaining how Wild Ken Hill is returning land to nature and showcasing the array of benefits that occur when nature is allowed to follow its own course. On this tour visitors are likely to encounter the Exmoor ponies and Tamworth pigs, discover butterflies, hear birds and learn about the 800 or more different types of insects in the area.
The Dawn Chorus tour is a wonderful opportunity to hear and learn about the wide variety of birds that are resident or migrate to Wild Ken Hill. This tour begins before sunrise and takes in two hours in Ken Hill woods.
