Plessey Woods Country Park in Northumberland is getting ready to welcome visitors to enjoy a fascinating talk about herbs and plants that live around the park, and their properties.
The event will be led by herbalist Ruth Iglesias-Cuevas who has a business locally in Bedlington. During the ‘herbal walk’, from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday 1 July , she will talk about species that grow in the woods and their uses, benefits, and anything that people should be cautious about.
The woodlands offer a range of interesting herbs and plant life all year round. Examples will include Hemlock, whose proper name is Conium Maculatum, and the Foxglove, or Digitalis.
There is a £3.50 charge to take part in the walk, and those who wish to go along should meet at the visitor centre at the park. Pre-booking is available.
Plessey Woods Country Park is set in 100 acres of woodland with meadows and riverside. With plenty of parking and good public transport links it is an ideal place for a family day out.
