Bill The Bodger ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

What actually is a Bodger? WoodlandsTV met Bill at the Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard, and in this film, Bill explains how the traditional bodgers worked in teams in the woodland, each performing a different task. We were pleased to be accompanied on the harp by "Mrs Bodger" Hillary, shyly hiding in their van while Bill was finishing a mallet on his pole lathe. They were working hard to raise money for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young, www.c-r-y.org.uk, which has personal significance for them.

A film for WoodlandsTV by Jemma Cholawo.

Was a bodger assigned to task based on his skill level or was a bodger able to do all parts of say the chair leg.
