Explore the estuary by canoe

Devon Estuary

PART 2 of The Old Way Immersion - THE RIVER CAMP


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 elm samaras and wild garlic, cooking over a fire in the ancient way.


This is the perfect place to learn how to fish for estuarine species using ancient and modern methods.  You'll learn the art of hide tanning, make cordage from natural fibres and continue your journey with fire. 

It's 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 hone your awareness, building on your repertoire of the resources that our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have known since childhood and explore the possibility of resilience through a wilder diet.

There'll be plenty of opportunities to learn the elegant art of paddling an open canoe and enjoy the stillness of the river at dusk.
