Rites of Way with Mr Hardy is a guided walk on time trodden paths. It is a journey into nature and into ourselves.
Listen to the woods, to the birds, to the wind in the trees, and the crunch of the leaves. When you have found that still place inside you, listen to stories we have curated.
Let Thomas Hardy’s words and the Celtic tree tales heighten your feelings about this place. Let yourself feel each character’s feelings, and have a deeper connection with the ancient stories of the trees.

Connect with feelings of joy, sadness and remembering, to take you deeper inside yourself. Doing so in the ancient woodland anchors those feelings in a special place, allowing you to return and experience them again in a safe way.
Listen again and find deeper meanings and connections, even at home in your armchair.
We are the creators of our journey.
We decide which path to take.

With a pathway out of lockdown and isolation we can feel the promise of Spring but Winter still comes back to bite us. Lie or sit by an ash tree or imagine a huge straight ash above you. Close your eyes and take a deep breath…
Green spaces: helping reduce stress

A blue haze covers the woodland floor - bluebells, hundreds of them dotted with a few white specks of greater stichwort. Spring is in full flow - breathe, relax, and take it all in.
