Forestry Commission projects

Here’s a few heritage projects, funded by the Forestry Commission & the Heritage Lottery Fund that you may be interested in. The idea is to make a new trail into the forest to link and interpret its landscape history, wildlife and forest management.  Please note, these are Forestry Commission projects, not Brandon Heritage Centre, so contact details are at the bottom of this message for anyone interested.  🙂

Receive training in how to monitor archaeological sites to help protect and conserve them.

SUNDAY 15th APRIL, 9am to 1pm

SATURDAY 21st APRIL, 10am to 4pm
