Last weekend at Paxton House was a day of adventure, with a twist as one lucky family had a wild time in the great Turkey Oak at Paxton House! Saturday afternoon saw Mum, Dad and two boys arrive ready to be welcomed, kitted-up in harness and helmet in readiness to climb the huge tree. Despite a few wobbles with the weather during the big set-up, come climbing time, the clouds parted and the sun shone on the River Tweed far below us.
Photographer William Gray arrived with all his cameras and lenses ready to capture the adventure action. Will is working on one of the super new Bradt Travel Guides which is due out later year. After instruction and some great climbing, and when all our climbers were far off the ground, it was time to get Will into position. Using our special (dis)ability harness set-up, designed to allow us to offer our adventures into the canopy for those with low or no mobility, Will was hoisted up, up and away into the trees with the greatest of ease, at least for him anyway!
