North West Bushcraft On BBC Radio Lancashire

LUNCHTIME FAVOURITES with Maria Felix Vas, BBC Radio Lancashire (Saturday 12-2)Last Saturday, Maria’s Guest on Lunchtime Favourites was a local Forager from Chatburn.

Adrian Rose and his wife Louise, run a non- profit making organisation, educating people on living of the land. Their main aim is to promote primitive knowledge, and give out information on wild foods, herbs and foraging, and wilderness awareness.Their motto is “live, thrive,survive”, and for more information contact them at:


Damper Bread… A simple bread with no yeast that can be made either at home or on the campfire. 
Locally sourced/foraged ingredients can be put in to flavour the bread such as Hazelnuts, wild garlic, raspberries or blackberries.

250g self-raising flour
Half teaspoon salt
25g unsalted butter cubed
175ml milk


  • Mix salt and flour together, then add the cubed butter and work through the finger tips till it resembles bread crumbs. 

  • Then add your "foraged" flavourings.Stir in the milk and mix to form a soft but not sticky dough.Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a ball shape.

  • Set the dough onto a floured baking tray and flatten to a round shape roughly 17cm across.

  • Cut a deep cross in the middle, brush with milk, then bake in the oven at 190c for 30 minutes.
