Welcome to Weaveley Furze online!

This is the website of the Weaveley Furze Trust whose history, aims and volunteering opportunities can be found by clicking on the links to the right - History, The Re-awakening etc. The Chair's report on the last year's activities, given to the Annual General Meeting on 24th April 2017, can be read on both the links Who are we? and Latest News.

Coppicing is finished for the year and the wood is now a riot of wild vegetation, humming with wildlife. We do our best to keep the paths free of nettles but long trousers or jeans are probably a good idea for Summer visitors. Clearing the paths will continue until growth dies back in the Autumn and anyone who would like to help can be assured of a warm and cheerful welcome, plus tea/coffee, cheese and cake. It's an enjoyable way of getting fresh air and exercise or just of having a good time in the English countryside, with family or friends or as part of a working party - contact the Trust for details of times and dates when these are planned, or click on Latest News.

Weaveley Furze is open to visitors every day all year round. The Getting There link gives details of access by foot, public transport and car. Interesting natives of the wood include many plants, fungi, insects, birds - and these deer, which volunteer Perry Knight has been recording with a hidden, motion-triggered camera.

Comments and Feedback are always welcome.  Thank you very much for visiting our website - and we hope to see you in the wood.
