Rusland Spring Show
Clare and I were really impressed by the exhibits. Thanks too to Lily Rowe-Horseman for the info on woodland skills. We persuaded her to come along to the first day of survey too.
In the afternoon there was a short guided trip to Stony Hazel Wood where Penny gave a brief introduction to woodland survey . This was followed by a visit to the finery forge, led by John Hodgson, the Lake District National Park Archaeologist. John explained how the forge functioned and the group discussed some of the unanswered questions that remain regarding the original form and duration of use of the structure.

We will be surveying Stoney Hazel Wood later in the season.
