A Walk Towards Trail by Rachel Massey

After visiting John Nash: A Landscape of Love and Solace, we invite you to connect with nature with this new pick-up trail, specially designed for Compton Verney by art and wellbeing specialist Rachel Howfield Massey from Other Ways to Walk. Building on new research showing that connection with nature is more beneficial to wellbeing than just contact with nature.

We suggest that you allow around one hour for this activity and be prepared to slow down and enjoy the journey. There is no right or wrong way to do it, just take your time to pause and consider each phrase, follow the invitations one by one and do what feels right to you.
