Hilfield's Seasonal Trails

We are pleased to present our new series of seasonal trails around the Friary.  Please use them, either ‘virtually’ from home, or for real at the Friary.  We hope you enjoy them.  It is a new development for us, and if you have any feedback, please send it to

Please use the ‘back arrow’ to return to the website after viewing the PDFs.

We would like to thank Sam Woodhouse very much for all the hard and amazing work she has put in to create these trails and also the Hilfield Updates!!!

A Rocha UK


A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world.  Visit their website:

The Friary is the first community in the UK to be given an Eco Church Gold Award in recognition of the integrated ecology we are seeking to put into practice at Hilfield. This includes our prayer and worship, the growing and sourcing of our food, the energy we use (predominantly biomass and solar), the use of transport (electric car, bicycles and public transport), the care and conservation of habitat and species of wildlife, our concern for social justice and our education programme.

Church is an A Rocha UK project to encourage churches and other Christian groups to ‘go green’ and demonstrate that they care for God’s earth. We hope that our Gold Award will spur others on!
