Green Woodworking

Green Woodworking

Lesnes Abbey Woods were once a managed coppice  and different areas of the woods were used to cultivate different trees. The Friends of Lesnes Abbey and Woods Forest Club aim to give people a stronger connection with the woodland by helping conserve it, understanding it and working with its resources for the benefit of the community and woods.

We will be demonstrating some of the old woodland skills and may even need some help from members of the audience. 

These Demonstrations take place at 11:00 am; 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm

Throughout the session Richard Sylvester will also help people try out some hands-on activities which you can just drop-in for, although there may be a bit of a queue. 

Note that anyone under 14 or requiring full-time care must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult who will take responsibility for them following all safety instructions.
