Sensory Walks

Sensory walks in the Epping Forest District

Our sensory walks provide opportunities to meet similar minded people, to explore interesting places, provide for all ages and abilities, often with a chance to practise your skills with a camera or do some quiet drawing outdoors. They are therapeutic and ideal for creating a healthy solution as they provide some gentle exercise and plenty of fresh air whatever the weather. 

Sensory walks are a series of walks that take place at regular intervals to suit the needs of those looking for inspiration, an interest in the countryside and local history.  Many of our walks are in Epping Forest, local nature reserves and places of interest.  As part of the walks we teach photography, art and local knowledge about our environment.

Sensory Projects

Our walks include areas of the Epping Forest, local churches, nature reserves and other places of interest in the Epping Forest District.  Our walks include talks by local experts on the environment, local history or teaching drawing, photography and recording  videos of the sites visited.

Our workshops are arranged at indoor venues in the district looking at the information gathered and developed to create an exhibition of artwork, photographs and other media once a year.

The easy access route at High Beach in Epping Forest provides an easy way for wheelchair users to visit the Forest and see the many old veteran trees that live here.
