Events and how to find us

Wet Woods Restoration Day, March 2020

Bringing people together in the woods for cultural, social and practical events is an integral part of our work.

We organise practical work days in the woods, including tree planting and the restoration of features that ‘slow the flow’ of water through the woods. There are also educational events such as guided walks to identify birdsong and explain the forestry work.

Understanding the history of the woods is important to all of us, and we have been lucky that Woodland Trust archaeological volunteer Hilary Hinks spent close to a year researching and producing a summary of the history.  She also produced a podcast featuring Tony Warburton, the last Foreman of the former sawmill in Vert Woods.

Future events will be announced via our email newsletter – sign up here
