The first of a two-day event, Day 1 is a celebration of the remarkable and unique heritage of ancient woodlands. To do this we introduce recent and current research in woodland archaeology and management and update on progress since the landmark publication of the ‘Woodland Heritage Manual’ in 2008. Our keynote speaker for the day is Professor Charles Watkins, University of Nottingham.

Day 2 will focus on the threats to this irreplaceable heritage and ecology posed by current forestry policies and woodland management prescriptions and include a field excursion.
