Woodcroft Wildspace Visit

24 members enjoyed a very informative guided walk through Woodcroft Wildspace on 3rd July.

Starting at the new entrance walk, and on to Contemplation Corner and continuing through woodland to see the eco-gym and through to the orchard where there are over 80 apple trees including heritage varieties.

The workings of the water storage and watering system were explained and there was a break at the three ponds before going into the Sensory Garden. A relaxing  finish with tea and scones followed.
