Something’s A Coming To A Wood Near You

As part of the work being done for Wellesley Woodlands, Nick Speakman of 3DWood, has been toiling away for us, carving new features to go across the sites.  Today Joe Heath from the Land Trust and I went over to Nick’s workshop to have a look at how he’s been getting on.  Joe took some pictures and we thought you might like a sneak peak at one of the features.  This will be a double seat for Claycart Woods.  It is a section out of a huge Cedar tree trunk and is really comfy to sit on.

Keep an eye out in the future.  It won’t be long until these beautiful items can be found along the trails, in the woods and glades.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
