Learn friction fire lighting at Danes Dyke, Bridlington

Mon, 03 Jun 2019

As part of Active Coast 2019, a new-look Cover the Coast programme offers exciting monthly outdoor coastal activities for adults, including a range of walks.

The Cover the Coast sessions take place in some of the spectacular locations on the East Riding coastline.

The next session will be on Friday, 7 June, from 10am – 4pm, at Danes Dyke, Bridlington, and will feature Friction Fire Lighting. Meet at Danes Dyke car park (charges apply).

Participants will learn how to light a fire, using traditional friction fire lighting techniques. The session is physically demanding, but very rewarding on completion.

Booking is essential, via www.bridspa.com/events/?eventid=173602

Other Cover the Coast events will include spoon carving and a fossil hunt.

Later in the summer, there will also be two led Headlands Way walks, covering the route from Bridlington to Bempton, on Friday, 5 July, and Bempton to Filey on Friday, 2 August. Details of how to book, prices, and transport can be found at www.activecoast.org together with details of all the Cover the Coast sessions.
