October Update: The Friends of Therfield Heath and Greens

October Update: The Friends of Therfield Heath and Greens

Did you know that 20,000 soldiers once camped on Therfield Heath?

Did you know that Therfield Heath and the surrounding area was one of King James 1st favourite places for hunting hares?

The Friends are continuing their research of the Heath. Read more on our History timeline webpage.

Neither camping nor hunting are allowed on the Heath since it was designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1953.

Find out more about how wildlife is managed on the Heath today in this October’s RWG Wildlife presentation by the Heath Ranger in the Town Hall on Tuesday 24th October. Full information can be found on our What’s On webpage.

The Past Events page has reports and photographs of the recent Landscape photography course, the very popular Yoga on the Heath evening and other interesting and informative events organised by the Friends. The en plein air painting and sketching sessions go from strength to strength.

Sadly, there will be no more outdoor art until next year. However, you can view some of this wonderful artistic talent on its own page of the Friends website.

Full information about the Friends can be found at www.friendsoftherfieldheath.org.uk. Future events are listed on the calendar in the What’s On page as well as in the Listing. Read all about previous activities and view photographs on the Past Events and En Plein Air Art pages.
