    Bring water to drink, or a flask if you prefer a hot drink, and a packed lunch if you intend to stay all day. We usually provide water, squash, tea and biscuits. We provide an experienced leader, training and supervision, tools and gloves, but please bring your own gloves if you have them.
  • What you should wear

    - You should wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or torn.
