Hazel coppicing begins in November, now that the dormice are hibernating. Look out for our teams of volunteers working in the woods. Follow the smell of wood smoke and come and see what we’re up to.

This walk captures the scale, depth and variety of the Slindon Estate. It's a really good winter walk, and not just because it's mostly firm underfoot with vistas that open up through the bare trees.
