Meeting in Brassknocker Basin Car Park

A Sense of Smell


Did you know that oak leaves smell quite different to sycamore leaves? Have you ever noticed the scent of a deer or fox whilst out on a walk?  Does the smell of cut grass bring back childhood memories?

According to new research the smells experienced in nature can help boost psychological well-being, making us feel relaxed, joyful and healthy.  Immerse yourself in smells on this gentle, sensory, 2 hours walk and enjoy everything autumnal, like the mushrooms and beautiful coloured leaves, whilst exploring Conkwell Woods.

There is uneven ground throughout the woods.  Please note that this is a Pay & Display car park which takes coins and cards.  Please walk, car-share or cycle where possible.  There are public toilets at the beginning and end of this walk; the café will be open at the end of the walk.

Please bring:

  • Warm enough clothing for the weather (remember it will be much cooler in the woods)
  • Sturdy footwear
  • Camera (optional)
  • Notebook & pen (optional)

Leader: Tania Orgill
