Join us on a Fungi Foray on Saturday 22 October at 2 PM. Meet by the railway bridge on the track that runs between St Stephen’s Church and Anson School. All welcome.

Discover the variety of fungi breaking cover in the autumn in the woodland between the canal and railway at Great Haywood.
Led by local, knowledgeable ecologist, Richard Sunter.

No need to book – just turn up. For those coming by car, parking is available on the car park accessed between the Memorial Hall and the Sports & Social Club. The track is more or less opposite the car park entrance.
This was a very popular event last year and we’re delighted Richard will be our fungi guide again.


25 eager fungi spotters pointed out myriad fungi breaking cover in the woodland between the canal and railway at Great Haywood on Sat 22 October, a beautiful sunny afternoon between two wet days – we were very fortunate.  Our enthusiasm, particularly the children’s, was matched by local ecologist Richard’s as he kept up with the requests to identify ‘What’s this?’ and told us interesting facts of the fungi world.  Nature connection in action.  Thank you to Richard for a great afternoon.

An interesting blog by Duncan Coleman on Staffordshire Wildlife Truist’s website is worth checking out here.
