Our Bushcraft School is based in the beautiful Fishbrook Wood at Knowsley Safari Park. The wood was created in the late 1700s to provide fish, fuel and timber for the Knowsley Estate. It sits next to Mizzy Lake and includes streams and a waterfall, providing an oasis for animals and birds including woodpecker and kingfisher.


The wood is predominantly oak and mixed conifer, but contains a range of trees and a diverse range of British woodland plants.

Our outdoor school is open all year round and provides a range of courses including:

  • Adult bushcraft courses (one-day and two-day)
  • Family bushcraft experience
  • Team building
  • Group experiences
  • Stag and hen days
  • Master classes
  • Children’s parties
  • Community activities
Knowsley Safari Park is easy to find from Junction 2 of the M57 – or if you are using a Sat Nav enter the postcode L34 4AN.
