DISCOVERING NEIGHBOURHOOD WOODLANDS
A set of six linked short guides to help you find out about neighbourhood woodlands is now available.
These six short basic guides cover researching the history and background of the woodland; assessing whether a wood could be classed as ‘ancient’; undertaking surveys and making records and providing information to help with the interpretation of the findings from the surveys. Much of the material has been taken from the Woodland Heritage Manual published in 2008. This is available from the Wildtrack Store, here.
The short guides were developed in association with a set of workshops organised by SYBRG with funding from the Heritage Lottery Awards for All grant scheme and South Yorkshire Community Foundation. The workshops introduced people to the ways they could uncover the secrets of the history and wildlife of their local woodland and help to look after its future. Each workshop was run at a different location across Sheffield and was a mixture of introductory talks and practical sessions including visits to local woods. Tutors at the workshops included Professor Mel Jones, Professor Ian D. Rotherham, Dr Paul Ardron, Barry Wright, Sally Goldsmith and Christine Handley.
