Shinrin-Yoku: Forest Bathing in the Brecks

A gentle and intentionally slow walk with guided sensory invitations along the way from a professional forest bathing and meditation guide. Designed to help you slow down, relax, and notice the beauty of nature. This walk will explore the beautiful Brecks heathland of Barnhamcross Common. This is a tranquil natural space on the edge of the town of Thetford.

Barnhamcross Common is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and is particularly important for its plant life. The Common is made up of a range of habitats including wooded areas, open heathland, and riverside. These habitats create a peaceful backdrop for this calming guided walk.

This walk is hosted by BFER in collaboration with Pathmakers for the Walk Norfolk Festival 2023. Pathmakers is an accessible walking charity based in Norfolk, who launched the Walk Norfolk Festival, an annual autumn walking festival, in 2022.
