Ray Mears

British Woodland

Hay Festival 2023, 

Bushcraft and survival expert Ray Mears turns his gaze closer to home with British Woodland, which offers a different way to experience our wooded landscapes. Using his deep natural history knowledge and practical woodcraft skills, gained over a lifetime of learning from the world’s last remaining indigenous peoples, he challenges old concepts, looks to our ancestors and shows how man’s hand in shaping woodland is critical. Mears’ television programmes include Ray Mears Goes Walkabout, and he founded the Woodlore School of Wilderness Bushcraft over 35 years ago. In conversation with Robert Penn, author, journalist, TV presenter, woodsman and co-founder of 'Stump up for Trees'.
