Frequently Asked Questions
Old clothing that you don’t mind getting mucky and scuffed is advisable. The following is recommended:
- Spare jumper/fleece
- Hat and gloves (especially during colder weather)
- Sturdy Footwear (wellies or walking boots)
- Waterproof coat
- Waterproof trousers
- Spare clothing (sometimes people fall/jump into the river…)
Clothing should be suitable for the weather/temperature, and you should be prepared to get it dirty; ideally long sleeved, must be long legged. Clothing which is cotton/wool based is more resistant to sparks from the fire than man-made fibres; clothing which dries quickly is recommended, avoid jeans.
In colder weather several layers of clothing are better than one thick layer, as well as allowing you to add or remove layers as you warm up or cool down.
