Last week we held a Winter woodland walk for volunteers at Wenlock Edge. It was led by Area Ranger Alistair Heath and was very successful with 21 volunteers attending. Alistair told us about woodland management, timber sales and wildlife before we tucked into cupcakes and warmed up with cups of tea and coffee.
We walked to the meadow and discussed the National Trust's landscape scale plans, ownership and conservation grazing before heading back into the woods to find out about ancient woodland, coppicing and access. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves despite the cold wind!
