Come on a journey of discovery of the trees that surround us.

Our island’s story has always been, and always will be, closely intertwined with the woods.

In this interactive guided walk through the ancient Leigh Woods, we will follow this story from the past, through today, and into the future.

We will explore the history of trees in Britain: how woodland cover has evolved over the centuries, our ancestors’ inextricable relationship with trees, and a taste of the folklore that emerged from it.

Moving to the present, we will learn to identify (and connect to) the trees around us, consider threats they face, and think about how recent, groundbreaking advances in tree science invite us to view trees in a new light.

Looking to the future, we will consider how humans might restore balance to our relationship to trees, so that we might both support each other once more.
