Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Kit List

What to wear

It can be very wet and cold (at any time of year!) Bring suitable clothes for being outside most of the day – this means lots of layers! Our recommendations:

  • Waterproof coat and trousers
  • Wellies and/or walking boots
  • Warm jumpers
  • Hat, scarf, gloves
  • Sun hat
  • Pair of clean, dry shoes for indoors
  • Lots of socks

Essential items

  • Towel
  • Toiletries – shampoo, shower gel, toothbrush, etc.
  • Torch (it is very dark here at night!)
  • Pencil case
  • Rucksack (with enough room for spare clothes and your lunch)
  • Water bottle and/or flask

Anything else?

  • A lunch box can be handy – stops your sandwiches getting squashed!
  • Any medication you require
  • Insect repellent (especially May – September)
  • Sun cream

We have a kit hire where waterproof trousers, jackets, walking boots and wellies can be borrowed for no extra charge.
