UK Partner SmallWoods feature on BBC Countryfile

April 2019

Our UK partner, SmallWoods appeared on BBC Country File Sunday evening (April 14/04/19) to share their part in rescuing our small woodlands from oblivion!

CountryFile presenter Ellie Harrison visited the Small Wood centre in Ironbridge, where they teach management techniques to help conserve our fragmented woodlands. 

Harrison learnt how to layer a coppice with volunteer co-ordinator Rob Marshal, turned a chair leg on a pole lathe with professional woodsman Mike Taylor and helped with the restoration of England’s longest railway gates with master woodworker Neill Mapes.

More information on the fantastic work our charity partner, Small Woods, do to help maintain and restore our small woodlands across the UK can be found by visiting their website:
