5 Frequently Used Knots

Knowing a few knots and what purpose they each fulfil can save hours of faffing around with ropes and tarps. Here Ellie demonstrates 5 knots that we commonly use in the woods: Timber Hitch, Taut Line Hitch, Taut Tarp Knot, Bowline and Clove hitch. As some of the names suggest they can be very useful for putting up tarps but equally useful for setting low ropes courses and rope bridges among other applications.
