The roundhouse at Coeden Fach, Bishops Wood, Swansea.

Last weekend I went on a woodland management day at Coeden Fach. They have a roundhouse which struck me as being very efficient in providing shelter, warmth, a meeting place and probably most important, a cup of tea ūüôā

Coeden Fach is a community tree nursery and woodland near Swansea in South Wales – “We promote awareness of the importance of sustainable land management and hold a vision of a future that is not reliant on fossil fuels.”

What a Lot of Wattle – Fencing at Llys Nini

Wattle fences are becoming common at Llys Nini Animal Centre.

One of the many woodland jobs carried out as part of Llys Nini Animal Centre woodland management is the building of wattle fences. The woodland is managed by Phil Morgan and it is he, along with an extensive team of adult volunteers and visiting school children, who create these wonderful pieces of weaving in the natural environment.

This abandoned section of wattle fencing I came across in one of the fields next to the woods, gave me some great subject matter for my photography. I love its unwinding form and apparent keenness to get back to the earth.
