Leaf-wolves and Danger-rabbits

Corbar Woods, Buxton

light through the leaves

Corbar Woods are one of the oldest woodlands in Buxton. For Victorian visitors there were walks and elegant arbours, curving bridges and beautiful vistas. All that is gone, but the older heart of the wood remains with some wonderful trees, bluebells in spring and a whole community of the strange and dangerous. There are soul-suckers in these woods. There are leaf-wolves, toothed birds and beech-vampires. There are hunting rabbits and glittering eyes keeping watch, spinning gently under the canopy. But there are beautiful angels too and occasional fairies

So take a walk through Corbar and who knows what will trip you up…..

Saturday 15th September 2018

Corbar Woods, Buxton

1 – 4 pm

flower faeries or leaf goblins, who knows?

there might be squirrels

Join us for an afternoon of making, laughing and inventing adventures in Corbar Woods, one of Buxton’s oldest woods. There, under the spreading branches of the beech trees, we’ll tell terrible tales of the strange and wonderful world of Corbar. By ancient yews we’ll make the mysterious animals and beautiful peoples who might yet be hidden in the woods. As old and well-crunkled oaks watch us, we’ll make shining, glittering wood-eyes so the wood can watch us all the way home….

Drop in between 1 and 4 on Saturday 15th. This is one of a number of activities in Buxton that afternoon so look out for excitements at Lightwood, in Pavilion Gardens and in Grin low Woods at Buxton Country Park as well…

The activity is free, no booking needed

Materials provided

Enter the woods by the Corbar Rd entrance and we will be based somewhere round there

Stone and Water are working with Buxton Civic Association and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust for this event
