National Coppice Day

Back to Guided Walks page

From Ford we walk to Weavern Farm to enter Colerne wood where Wardens have coppiced areas over many years. A small demonstration may be possible, weather permitting, and you will see deer fencing around the most recent work. Please bring drinks. Return via Thickwood. Pub lunch available afterwards.
