We will have non-drop premium cut Nordmann fir trees ranging in size from 4ft to 7ft, plus some potted trees, a range of wreaths and decorations.The way we set-up our forest is so that you can walk amongst the firs, as they hang from the ceiling of the barn and you can see exactly how the tree will look when it finds its place in your home.

Nature Connection & Mindfulness Walks - 4 Week Programme

A series of guided walks to experience natural mindfulness and nature connection practices for wellbeing. Sundays, 9:30am, from 28th Nov

About this Event

Each weekend you will be given the opportunity to experience mindfulness and nature connection practices during gentle guided walks within a nature reserve in Belper.

The health and wellbeing benefits of experiencing nature mindfully are well documented; some reported benefits include improved relaxation, sleep, immunity and focus.

This winter programme is a chance to invest time in a nature-based antidote to the hustle and bustle of the season. To connect to nature, to re-connect to your true nature.

You will gain a natural wellbeing toolkit, which you will be free and encouraged to try on your own during the week.

You will be guided by Sami from Samphire Natural Wellbeing, a certified Natural Mindfulness guide, ecologist and holistic health practitioner.

The programme consists of four walks, on Sunday mornings at 9:30am, starting on the 28th November. The guided portion will last 45-60 minutes, although you are welcome to stay longer afterwards.


Sun 28/11/21 09:30

Sun 5/12/21 09:30

Sun 12/12/21 09:30

Sun 19/12/21 09:30

The walks will go ahead come rain or shine, but in the case of severe weather they will be re-scheduled to a following week.

Accessibility Notes:

The reserve has paths, uneven ground and some moderately steep slopes and steps (which can be avoided), however, the pace will be deliberately slow, with stops.

Access from the Market Place free car park has several steps, but the site can be accessed from Mill Lane or Park Road if you wish to avoid steps.

I teach Dru Yoga in my classes and would be delighted to share this flowing and highly accessible form of yoga with you.  In a typical class you will experience a range of movements including energy block release sequences and postures (asanas) and will normally finish with a deep guided relaxation.

Everyone is welcome!  We provide a very non-competitive environment where the focus is on doing what you feel comfortable doing no matter how young/old/flexible or inflexible you are!  The beauty of yoga is that it can work with you to achieve what you want to achieve - both for body and mind.

Please contact me if you’d like to come along to one of my classes.  

Thank you and hope to see you soon!

Belper’s Lost Industries Walk

This circular walk around Belper looks at the various lost industries of the world's first cotton mill town. It begins with the cotton mills built by the Strutt family at the very beginning of the Industrial Revolution, with a slight diversion to include the picturesque weir on the river, followed by a look at the houses the family built for their workers. From there, the walk looks at the nail-making industry that pre-dated the arrival of the cotton mills, plus the other industries which once provided employment for the town, including hosiery, confectionery, chemicals and engineering.

Distance: 2.8 miles. Duration: 2 to 2.5 hours. Price: £5.00

Start point: The Triangle (junction of A6 Bridge Street and A517 Bridgefoot),

Belper, Derbyshire. – Start time: 10:00am.
