“To my wide-eyed amaze­ment, the Wood­craft Folk or­gan­i­sa­tion vol­un­teered to take a six-year-old from the streets of Craw­ley to the won­ders of West­mor­land (Cum­bria) for a week’s camp­ing. Af­ter one day ex­plor­ing a land­scape carved by rivers and dry stone walls, I be­came lost amid brood­ing fells and stormy skies, and I learned trav­ellers can rely on the kind­ness of strangers. Decades later, I have been lost and res­cued many times. I am no bet­ter at light­ing a fire from twigs than I was when I was six. But I am al­ways thank­ful for the Wood­craft Folk.”
