You may have noticed a lot of work has taken place around the ship wreck at the play area. We have been coppicing the chestnut as part of a planned maintenance cycle, and although things look a little different right now, this has been done to improve things for years to come, as well as to make the area safe for your enjoyment. You will soon notice new shoots appearing where we have coppiced, and bluebells too. And the woodchip we have generated will be fuelling our woodchip boiler at the visitor centre. We still have a little bit more work to do, so while the work takes place, please read the safety and information notcies, and remember that the rest of the play trail is still open for you to explore.If you want to check what is happening at the last minute, please ring the visitor centre on 01580 879820
