Budding hunter-gatherers can now hone their survival skills on a special woodland course.

People wanting to follow in Bear Grylls’ footsteps can enrol themselves at a foraging and cookery school in Barcombe.

The school, called Hunter Gather Cook, specialises in wild food, outdoor living and self-sufficiency and is designed to teach participants how to identify, process and cook a range of wild plants and animals to a high standard.

Set in 40-acres woodland and farmland near Lewes, the course is spearheaded by Nick Weston, also known for his role as a survival expert in the Channel 4 series Shipwrecked and author of the Tree House Diaries.
