About Shedding light on the woodland floorThe glorious colours of Autumn combined with the serenity of working in the woods.
Experience the glorious colour of the Slindon Estate in Autumn, whilst helping to manage its pockets of woodland, tucked in the South Downs. At this crisp time of year we will be coppicing for hedging products and for wildlife- including our strong dormice population. Enjoy the feeling of a day in the woods with the smell of wood smoke and return to the Bunkhouse to warm up by the log burner.
