RIVER

Explore the estuary by canoe

May 
Devon Estuary

PART 2 of The Old Way Immersion - THE RIVER

 

We'll paddle down the brackish waters of the estuary past bluebell woods and camp on the shore, harvesting crabs, oysters and clams and grazing on young beech leaves and wild garlic, cooking over a fire in the ancient way.

You'll deepen your ability to read the language of the birds at the height of the nesting season and so unlock the secrets of the landscape.  

This is the perfect place to learn how to fish for estuarine species using ancient and modern methods. 

This is the season of abundant growth in the plant world and you'll deepen your journey into plant lore, foraging both hedgerow and estuarine edibles, and learn valuable medicinal tips. 

You'll learn the art of hide tanning and get used to spotting resources, mapping the landscape, and crafting on the move, so there's always cordage ready for fishing or lashing.
