    Really enjoyed the Mushroom Hunt yesterday, Sunday, in the company of like-minded people. We found quite a few different types – looking forward to seeing the photos on the Friends of Broadhurst website. It would have been better if the sun had been shining but it didn’t deter us fungus hunters one little bit! To all those who couldn’t join us, next time you’re in Broadhurst Clough, walk slowly, keep your eyes open and you might be surprised what you can find growing amongst the leaves in the Autumn and Winter months.
