Field Weekend June 2018: Shropshire and Staffordshire Borders

Thursday 21st to Saturday 23rd June - Shropshire and Staffordshire borders

Please join us for our annual Woodland Heritage Field Weekend and AGM.


Thursday June 21st afternoon:

Our weekend promises to be diverse, commencing with an afternoon visit to The Seed Unit and the outlying Clonal Orchards of Forestart Ltd the premier supplier of quality tree, shrub and wildflower seeds, based in the UK.

Friday June 22nd:

A full day will also be spent at Norbury Park Estate’s young woodlands and Sawmill with an introduction to the research and a site visit to the Birmingham Institute of Forestry Research’s (BIFor) Free-Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE) experiment, set in mature, unmanaged, temperate woodlands. An optional late afternoon visit to the outlying Jubilee Wood plantation is also planned.

Saturday June 23rd:

Our final day will be spent at the beautiful and historic Weston Park which is set in more than 1,000 acres of park landscaped by Capability Brown and given to the nation in 1986 by the 7th Earl of Bradford, with the support of the National Heritage Memorial Fund. The 17th-century Hall is a Grade I listed building and retains its art collection with over 30,000 objects, and is open to the public. Several other features of the estate, such as the Orangery and the Stable block, are Grade II listed and so there will much to see and enjoy.


Our Field Weekends are very popular and numbers will be restricted.

Members will receive priority over others on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
