Owners’ websites

http://www.swog.org.uk/ An enthusiasts’ site for owners of small woodlands throughout Britain. Also open to non-owners. Many people keep in touch through this friendly and useful organisation. They publish a monthly newsletter and invite discussion on their forum. Frequently updated, we recommend a visit!

 

woodlander23.wordpress.com A blog about a man's dream to own a small woodland. "The blog has documented my visits, activities and progress since I purchased it five years ago…Some of the activities covered tree felling and management, camping, cooking, blacksmithing, woodworking, wildlife spotting, shelter building plus lots more.”

coppicingsuz.wordpress.com  This blog is a diary of Suz's journey from London based care worker to fully fledged woman of the woods.” A fascinating, hands-on account of that journey, infused with a (self-confessed) outsider’s enthusiasm and wonderment, with some excellent, illustrative and to-the-point photography

woodlandwildflowers.com  Although it calls itself a blog, it is more of a reference website – and an admirably comprehensive one at that. “This site [says the home page] is about wild flowers you can find in woodlands. The photographs of the flowers were all taken by me and a lot of them were taken in the Wye valley area in Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire.”

www.ledbythewild.co.uk Led by the Wild is an outdoor learning and community activity hub based at Whites Wood Farm near Ashford, Kent. The website is beautifully designed, a model of its kind.

https://alvecotewood.wordpress.com/ This is a blogger’s site on nature and some social issues. Sarah Walters is a retired doctor and has a lot of interesting opinions in her articles.

 

 

 

http://peplers.blogspot.com Tracy and Mike’s personal website that has a great deal on it and some useful video clips of using a chainsaw. Older blogs are accessed via the index in bottom right hand corner.

 

 

 

http://www.lightwoods.co.uk/ Richard’s story about discovering wildlife in their wood and then moving into woodland crafts – charcoal burning with his neighbour, and wood-turning with a friend.

 

 

 

http://www.thegreenphoenix.co.uk/ In the Cambrian uplands of Wales, this a site dedicated to their nature reserve and includes sustainable living hints and tips. Their volunteering programme looks like fun!

 

 

 

http://www.midsummerwood.co.uk/ This is a simple site but is high on open and friendly communication. Worth a visit to hear the woodland sound track.

 

 

 

http://www.greatgroves.co.uk/ There’s a good deal of naturalist’s advice on this site but the diary hasn’t been updated for several years. The owners have a good story about their wood and what to do with it.

 

 

 

 

http://www.olgartrust.org/venus-wood.htm Venus Wood is managed very interestingly by a trust (their constitution is on the website) and shows lots of great photos.
