regarding Bishops Wood Centre
"The centre is located within a 39-hectare site which includes 17 hectares of ancient woodland and a field of 11 hectares which was planted to re-create mixed broadleaf woodland, meadows and other habitats.
Bishops Wood is recognised nationally and internationally for its work in environmental and sustainability education with schools and for its training courses.
Due to the nature of our educational work, regrettably, the Centre is not open to the general public except on our Open Days."
I think Bishops Wood is a WONDERFUL place, very interesting and educational and great fun to visit! I really hope to see some of my blog friends there, so if you DO come to it, please come and say hello to me!
