Chris Bloor aka The Gaveller
Inventor of the Green Man Challenge, founder of Town and Country Harriers, author of three books connected to the Community Forest Path and Gaveller to the Honourable Order of Woodwoses.
My aim is to lead people out of the city into the countryside, an aim I share with the 45-mile Community Forest Path around Bristol, discovered on a waymark in Ashton Vale, whilst out running with Town and Country Harriers.
The books were designed to link the city to the Community Forest Path by a series of smaller circular routes that involve more woods and community centres.
The Green Man Challenge was designed to promote the Path, which was created by the Forest of Avon, and the books.
I am currently working on routes in Horwood Forest – the northern part of the area covered by the Forest of Avon Trust.
