Tottington Woodlanders Anniversary Celebrations

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

A Heavy Horse Logging and Woodland Crafts Day

Where : Tottington Woods in Small Dole, West Sussex, BN5 9XE
When: Saturday August 19th 2017.
Time: Gates Open 11.00am until 4.00pm

In celebration of 25years of looking after Tottington Woods in order to keep it in good heart for the benefit of the indigenous flora and fauna (as well as the surrounding human population), the Tottington Woodlanders are organising a one-off event on the 19th August 2017.

Daniel Brown will be bringing one of his lovely heavy horses to haul out trees that were felled during the thinning process to reduce the top canopy. Woodlouse Industries is setting up their sawmill in the wood to process the trees on site so visitors will be able to see the whole process. (Note that no actual tree-felling will be taking place because of the obvious safety factors.)

In addition there will be a number of practitioners of various traditional woodland crafts demonstrating and selling their produce – pole-lathe turning, hand-carving, walking stick making, hurdle making, etc. There will also be a demonstration of creating sculpture from “brash” (Hazel sticks and off-cuts). Sussex Wildlife Trust and the renowned wildlife photographer and expedition leader, David Plummer, will also be there. It will be a lovely day to come along and enjoy watching these skilled craftsmen/women at work.
Catering outlets will be on site and should be able to satisfy most dietary requirements using locally sourced Sussex produce.

So come along and enjoy a traditional day out in the beautiful Tottington Woods, locally renowned for its woodland flowers, particularly bluebells in season.
