Craft Wood is a hands on social woodland enterprise that offers engaging and creative outdoor opportunities – to groups and individuals (children. young people and adults).

Our Mission

Craft Wood’s mission is to support people to develop new skills and confidences, to gain on-going independence and to develop the woodland as an environmental hub. We want the woods to be a thriving place where people can explore, connect, create and feel part of a growing grass roots movement.


The project is located off Inns Lane near the village of South Wingfield – in sight of the historic Wingfield Manor. There is parking available as you enter the site – from here it is a small walk in.
