About Can't see the wood for the trees

Help on our woodland pasture restoration project.

Help the ranger team remove conifer trees as part of Longshaw's wood pasture restoration project by moving and burning brash and extracting timber. This will give our veteran oaks and a new generation of broadleaved trees room to grow with wood ants and woodpeckers for company.

About the accommodation

A fully converted farmhouse situated at the western end of Edale. The bunkhouse lies at the foot of the 538m Horse Hill Tor with views of Kinder Scout. It is surrounded by working farms and a wooded garden with a stream. 

Notes for guests

A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page.
