January 2014 -On the road again!

Following  festive frolics at Tycanol over Xmas and New Year we are back to the serious stuff. Coppicing and preparing for Spring 2014.

The wild weather  resulted in a few issues for Coed Panteg woodland.

As Martin remarked last year the pipe under the track is too small and consequently blocks up when Autumn leaves, sticks and lots of water combine.

Following the gales that took down the kitchen tent it has been completely rebuilt using new Ash poles and re-covered by the coppice crew in January. Thanks to everyone who turned up and worked so hard on this and the regular coppice work. ( More to follow in my next post)

The wind blew down a few trees including this one in the section we coppiced last year.

We took Harry, Lucy and dear old Charlie for a play in the woods over New Year.

We pulled carrots,

Played in the woods and had fun!

Took my latest toy  ( not really a toy rather a vital bit of kit) down the woods to collect a first load of wood. So much easier than messing up the inside of the wagon.
