Enchanted woods in Stockbridge

If you go down to Little Woods today you’re in for a big surprise, as there are two new additions to the woodland walk.

Two new tree sculptures have been created thanks to the Stockbridge Junior Rangers. Children from the Stockbridge Rangers and St Albert’s RC Primary School designed the intricate tree carvings.  The children were asked to come up with some ideas for the sculptures, which resulted in some fantastic drawings of squirrels, insects and even a badger.

The Stockbridge Junior Rangers help look after Little Woods and over recent years have been tidying, cutting back weeds, planting and looking after the pond.  The woods are now a fantastic place for families and walkers to visit and enjoy a nature stroll, taking in some wonderful sights along the way.

In 2013 the group applied for funding from the National Lottery to create tree sculptures from some of the trees in the woods, and were thrilled when they discovered that their application had been accepted.

George Jewell, Stockbridge Junior Rangers Leader said “We were delighted that our bid was successful as it helped us pay for the fantastic tree sculptors who really have brought the children’s ideas to life.  It has been a fantastic project for the children to get involved with and brings a new lease of life to the woodland walk.”
