The cafe employs people with special needs but Melanie brightened up our day. Beautiful walk, lovely scenery. Poetry trail all around the walk, it a hidden gem. Takes 1 - 2 hours.
How to get to Corbenic Camphill Community Ltd by Bus?
My partner and I very much enjoyed this walk in Autumn. It was a bit muddy in places, but full of interesting wee poems and things to see. It takes more than an hour of you're having a long look at everything. It was a little hard to find, the turn-off isn't well signposted. Our tip is that if you get to the nearby campus, you've went too far. A friendly staff member sent us in the right direction though.

On leads mind. We walked the path on a lovely sunny September day, there was nobody else there!
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to walk it again in different seasons. The path is mainly low level, would recommend trainers or walking boots, and take your reading glasses as some of the poetry is in very small text! Walk and enjoy the sound of silence of nature.

There were garlands on their bows, cast upon them by the pretty maidens who cried their names with voices joyous and sweet, and some had on their faces the smiles of those who spend the night in good company. Proud and confident they were, renowned in this country and beyond as skilled and valiant, though their numbers were not great.
After some leagues of travel, the riders reached the forest whence the beast reportedly came from, where it should dwell when not causing devastation. On the outskirts of the woods there was a lumber camp, but not one soul could be seen or heard. The wooden walls were darkened and covered in moss, and some tools were left outside to rust, exposed to the rain. Whoever had worked there would come back no longer. Within the forest, the birds did not sing, as if fear of the evil that lurked in the shadows had silenced them; and the only thing one could hear was the crackling sounds of the cicadas.
As they contemplated that lonely, murky place, the smiles faded from the faces of the noble archers. The commander rallied the host, ordering the horses be bound at the lumber camp. But the archers were not really hunters; they were men of war, used to fighting and firing on open fields and even terrain, not in the narrow, crammed spaces of the woods. When they were deep in the woods, where the leafy canopy was so thick that the sunlight barely entered, they were surprised, attacked from the back by a frantic charge.

The archers in disarray could not see anything but brown blurs and red stains. On that day, the king suffered heavy losses. News of the failure of the assault soon reached the castle of Corbenic, and the few survivors, gravely wounded, were sent to hospital ward.
Within his hall, sitting on his throne, the Fisher King sunk his head on his hands, losing hope to overcome this great peril alone. Three days passed; some men were healed, while others died from their wounds. On the fourth, the king summoned his courier. Tell King Arthur we are in need of his aid. The horse halted for a moment, and the rider, though he had seen the stony towers several times, breathed deeply, filling his heart with hope. Arriving at the great gate, he saw hoisted colourful pennants and banners, fluttering in the wind; standards of great lords and knights from all across the realm, and he knew they would be assembled at the Round Table.
Fortune was on his side. Wise and merciful, it was a custom of King Arthur to hear the pleas of his subjects in such occasions, before discussing matters of state. It was the first time he would speak to King Arthur directly; he was dazed by his magnificence, as if the gleam of his gold-embroidered mantle blinded him. King Pelles is a dear friend, and I would have his messenger be treated well.
Now, tell us what brings you here. The farms and villages have been ravaged. A giant boar, they say, in a frenzy.

The land suffers, the people flee in terror, and it shall not be long until it reaches the castle gates, where none can defend it. Whispers were heard throughout the hall. All the knights heard the messenger, as did some castle servants. The faint sob of a servant woman was heard; her family had remained in the eastern lands when she moved to the court, and she worried ever since. The King held out his hand, and there was silence. Have your people no hoes and shovels to till the land, axes to cut wood or bows to hunt, that they can use to bring it down?
The mumbling began once more around the table, somewhat louder. Our forces were all but annihilated. Few came back, and fewer still recovered from their wounds. I beg you, our king begs you, o most honourable and merciful of kings, to save our people! Send your knights to stop this menace, before it destroys our country and spreads to other parts of the realm. For King Pelles had a daughter by the name of Elaine, who, like the princess of legend who shared her name, was a beautiful young lady; fair-skinned, with long golden locks of hair.
It had been only once or twice that Gawain had seen Elaine, but that was enough for him to swear her love everlasting.
