About the event

The rich tapestry that is the present day landscape of Surrey owes its beauty to thousands of years of interaction between people, geology and the natural environment.  This introductory course will take you on a journey of discovery from the Ice Age and Mesolithic hunter-gatherers wandering across the downs to the views enjoyed today by hikers and cyclists. 

Your tutor, Paul Ritchie, will begin with a classroom session followed by a walk through Nower Wood where you will see first hand, this transformation over time.


This is part 1 of the Habitats of Surrey - Summer Series. Throughout these 5 weeks, we will investigate how Surrey has evolved into a richly diverse cluster of habitats. Each course can be booked individually.  However, join us for all five morning sessions and receive a £20 voucher that can be used when purchasing any future Adult Learning course (Ts & Cs apply).
