FANCY a spot of fungi foraging in the Heddon Valley? Turkey tails, candle-snuff, earth balls and dryads saddle – these are just a few of the species you might spot on a Fungi And Foraging expedition along the Heddon Valley this Sunday, led by National Trust expert Patrick Watts-Mabbott.
Fungi come in all shapes and sizes and if you've ever wondered which fungi are poisonous and which are just delicious, which might make a fine risotto and which ones might just kill you, join the fascinating talk and walk at Heddon's Mouth where Patrick will show you what treats are around at this time of year. You might even spot the largest living organism on earth – the Honey Fungus.
The Fungi And Foraging expedition along the Heddon Valley led by National Trust expert Patrick Watts-Mabbott is on Sunday, October 6.
Meet at the Heddon Valley National Trust Shop at 10.30pm.
Booking is required. Cost: £5 (adult), £2.50 (child). Wellies are advised as the ground may be muddy.
There will also be a Tramper available for those who find difficulty walking, which must be booked in advance.
