The wild garlic I harvested the other week came from nearby Cally Woods. Despite this only being a few miles away from the house, we hadn’t had time for a visit before now. It was an overcast day but there was still plenty to see with the last of the snowdrops, loads of bridges for playing pooh sticks and an old earthwork to walk up.

There are also a few installations, like these amazing sensory benches and some open air classrooms made from felled trees. Some of these had been damaged by fallen trees in the winter storms. The idea behind the benches is that you lay back (they’re surprisingly comfortable) and look at the stars through the tree canopy.
