High Weald Hero schools have contributed to the creation of more than 50 Welly Walks. These landscape walks, starting and ending at the school gate, provide opportunities for children to learn more about their unique local landscape. The schools continue to use their walks as part of their ongoing participation in the High Weald Hero scheme; actively sharing them across the school and with their local community.
