Based in the North West of England near the beautiful Forest Of Bowland in Lancashire, North West Bushcraft believes that Bushcraft knowledge should be a FREE RESOURCE open to everyone.
We will try to bring you as much information as we can on topics such as
- Wild Camping
- Wild Food Foraging
- Medicinal Plants & Trees
- Food Storage/Preservation
- Unbiased Product reviews
- Fungi Identification
- Primitive Fire Lighting
- Leather Craft
As previously stated, we strongly believe that all of this information should be available to everybody free of charge. All of these skills are not new, they have been around for thousands of years and have almost been forgotten in our modern "civilized" society.
It has been said that "we shape the things we make, thereafter they shape us", this essentially has made us far too reliant on modern technology, pre-packed/processed foods, chemical ridden drinks and "instant" solutions to our everyday lives.
North West Bushcraft aims to re-awaken these skills that our ancestors knew only too well. For them it wasn't camping or the modern term "Bushcraft", it was simply living day to day, making the most out of the natural resources around them and taking advantage of the wild foods that each of the seasons brought with them.
It is worthwhile noting that North West Bushcraft is NOT a "for profit" company, nor are we a limited business or corporation of any form, we are simply normal, everyday people with an enthusiasm for the countryside and everything that it has to offer. We have a long history in wild camping, bushcraft, wild food foraging and medicinal plants.
As such, you must keep in mind that we are not professionals and therefore any information that you get from this site must be done so at your own risk. When we discuss wild medicines for instance, we are not medically trained professionals, and therefore you MUST consult your GP before you try/use any of the treatments listed here. Likewise, you should do your own research/allergy tests when eating any wild food or fungi.
