Learn about these amazing bats and walk through their favourite habitats such as meadows and hedgerows. We’ll finish off with some bat detecting at sunset. Bring a torch. Strong footwear and suitable clothing are advised as the walk will be across rough ground and fields.

Meet at Deer Park Farm: travel west out of Chudleigh, cross the A38 bridge and turn right onto the B3193. Take the 1st right for Trusham; cross the R. Teign and the disused railway bridge, then IMMEDIATELY turn right. Follow the lane up the hill till you see double gates on your left with a Deer Park sign. Drive down to the farm. Car-share if you can!
