Mushrooms

Can I forage for fungi on the Hills?

Yes, you can forage for mushrooms for your own consumption although we would recommend that you are highly experienced and know your field mushroom from your death cap!

Please note that removal of any flora or fauna (including mushrooms or fallen wood) from areas of SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) on the Quantock Hills is prohibited. Find out which areas are SSSI using this interactive map.
