Wood craftsmen demonstrate their skills at Dudmaston Woodland Skills Day and Fungi Walk
20th September 2016
Events and Marketing Officer, Alexandra Blakeman, said: “We are proud of our woodland heritage because woodworking skills have been a key factor in the estate’s financial and environmental survival for many years. Come and see for yourself the different ways that we use this amazing natural product, and have a go at making your own wooden bug box to take home and put in your garden. You never know who might come to visit.”
Take a closer look at the many different species of fungi that grow on the estate and find out which ones taste good on your toast with John Hughes from Shropshire Wildlife Trust. He’ll be leading a Fungi walk around the parkland at 11.30am. Tickets are £2 each and can be purchased at reception or via our website. Talking of tasty morsels, the tearoom will be serving up their seasonal special of mixed mushrooms on toasted ciabatta, drizzled with Dudmaston’s freshly made garlic pesto.
As the leaves begin to turn, come and enjoy the beauty of the estate in autumn. Help us pick and press our apple harvest on Orchard Day, Sunday 16 October. Grow your own at home? Bring in a bag and we’ll press them for you.
Normal admission charge applies with a small additional charge for crafts.
