Where You can Find Us

We currently run sessions at the following locations

Shelton Infant School, Carlton Avenue, Shelton Lock, Derby, DE24 9EU

You will be met at the gates of Shelton Infant School at the the start time of your session. The forest school site is in front of the school to the right. Please note we have to pass through the nursery garden in order to access the site so all gates will be locked throughout sessions. If you need to attract our attention during a session please wave over the wall on the right hand side in front of the school gates and someone will come out to you.

Whistlewood Forest School, Whistlewood Common, The Common, Melbourne, Derbyshire, DE73 8DH

Whistlewood Common is situated between Melbourne and Ticknall. On leaving Melbourne along The Common we are just past Dovesite Business Park on the opposite side. We usually try to put a pink flag at the track entrance to help identify where we are. Turn down the track and Whistlewood is about half way down on the right. If travelling by car you can park on site but if you're coming from Melbourne it's a nice walk. Whistlewood Common is a beautiful community owned location that has lots going on, to find out more click on the link at the bottom of the page.

Staunton Harold Reservoir, Calke Road, Melbourne, Derbyshire, DE73 1DL

We meet by the steps in front of the cafe at the session start time and will walk together to that days base camp in the woods nearby. Parking is payable if using the car park but you are welcome to stay and use the site facilities for as long as you like after the session, to find out what's available please click the link below.

We are on the look out for further premises to allow us to run more sessions. If you can suggest a suitable location we would love to hear from you.
