Coppicewood College

"Coppicewood College promotes and supports sustainable woodland management and runs courses using traditional methods and tools.
These affordable courses cover all aspects of traditional woodland management practice and include, coppicing, hedge-laying, charcoal making and green wood craft, in our own working woodland in Cilgerran, Pembrokeshire.

We went along recently to one of their open days and had a walk through their woods with Nick Barnes, the Conservation Manager. He talked with huge knowledge of the work done at the College and showed us examples of the current coppicing going on.

Fantastic fungi in the woods.
