We would like to thank all those who have given support to this project from the local community, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, the Forestry Commission, the Pond Conservation Trust, Alvecote and Shuttington Parish Council, Maurice Arnold, and all the contractors and friends, family and volunteers who have worked on the site and given us advice and support.

We are developing Alvecote Wood according to our Woodland Management Plan that has been agreed with and grant-aided by the Forestry Commission under the English Woodland Grant Scheme.

Please note that because this is an outdoor exhibition, you are advised to wear suitable waterproof walking shoes or boots and bring a waterproof jacket just in case.

Photography Workshops - Introduction to Photography/Macro Photography

Would you like to make more of your camera? Perhaps you take photos and then wonder why they didn't turn out as you had hoped? Or maybe you just want to learn more about those buttons on your camera and what they do? Or maybe you would like to increase the range of images that you can take? We run several photography courses during the year, based at the woods. Please see our Events page for more information.
