Craft Wood is a sheltered woodland project that offers outdoor experiences – in particular for groups who are vulnerable and marginalized (including young people seeking a specialized forest school programme). We are located just outside the village of South Wingfield, in sight of the historic Wingfield Manor – a couple of miles out of Alfreton-(where the east midlands meets the edge of the peak district).
Craft Woods upcoming(Re)Spring 2020 Explorer sessions are focused on fresh outdoor experiences and developing individual confidences and improving well-being – in our sheltered woodland setting.
Access to the project is at present via a walk in. Work is being carried out to provide some vehicle parking on site. The aim is to retain the special quality a small walk in offers – and to develop/improve the link to the Alfreton-Crich bus route – encouraging independent travel where possible.
Craft Wood is place where you can feel included, supported and have the tools and space you need to build your world up.
a creative place under the canopy of the trees.
