I'm an author and am trying to find out who had the Biblins log cabin

built, who did the Canadian style building and when was this done. I

have half an idea Gloucestershire County Council had something to,do

with this in the 1960s. I would be grateful for any information.

The Forestry Commission's Deputy Surveyor at the time, Mr Sandson Baker, was the lead being a Scout Master. The main structure was built using locally produced Western Red Cedar logs by Forestry Commission craftsmen in 1957, with help from local schools and youth groups. Gloucestershire County Council operated the building once complete as an outdoor pursuits centre. The refreshment cabin at Symonds Yat Rock was constructed at the same time using the same techniques.
