Nov 16 A visit to Alvecote Wood – by Phil By Tracy

My wife, Karen and I, as well as other SWOG members went to Sarah Walters’ open day at wood at Alvecote in Warwickshire on Sunday and had a very enjoyable and informative time.


Sarah showed us some of her Keyfobs she has made from the off cuts of prunings. She also had Christmas cards using pictures taken in the woods on a frosty morning and calendars using pictures she has taken in the wood during the year.

Stephen then took us and about 12 other people on a guided walk through the wood explaining how they have improved and created new habitats by creating a series of ponds that are linked together.
The old Oak trees are an amazing sight, full of incredible features, nooks cranies and hollows.

It’s an amazing wood with an incredible amount of light in it. It’s very impressive the amount of work that Sarah and Stephen have carried out and the difference it has made in the last two years.

Karen and I are both looking forward to a return visit on an open day next year.
