Seeing The Wood For The Trees

Nowadays I don't do as much work in the woods, its quite a contrast to a few years ago when "bushcraft" was a significant area of activity - days training and talking with good friend Dave Watson of Woodland Survival Craft seem like a long time ago. As such the request from the lovely people at Wrexham Community Church to run a few sessions in the woodland that surrounds Blaithwaite House offered a good opportunity to spend some time working & interacting with groups in this unique environment.

The woods around Blaithwaite are packed full of native beech, birch & holly - leaf litter lies thick on the ground and for the keen observer there is a good supply of wild food & much additional useful plant life.

The weather wasn't at its kindest for these sessions - quite wet on occassions. However, work with the Church's "little people" & a session with adults was a rich experience.

The photos below, hopefully, paint a picture of the activity enjoyed:
