Walls & Hedges

The Churnet Valley Living Landscape Partnership has organised a number of Dry Stone Walling and Hedge Laying events for 2015. All events are run by qualified and highly skilled instructors and the walls and hedges have been identified to offer a wide range of learning opportunities, experience and, hopefully, fun.

Nominate a special wall

People in north Staffordshire are being asked to nominate special dry stone walls in the area that they believe need to be rebuilt and protected.

During 2011 the Churnet Valley Landscape Character Assessment identified the loss of traditional boundary features, such as dry stone walls and laid hedges, as one of the serious threats to the quality of the landscape. The Churnet Valley Living landscape Partnership, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, are looking for special walls in the valley where they can run training events so that local people can learn to look after their own walls.

Volunteer Assistant Woodland Advisor Wanted

The Sustainable Woodland Project needs a new person to volunteer one day a week as a Assistant Woodland Advisor. This is an exiting opportunity to gain valuable work experience, whilst developing skills in conservation and woodland management. The role will involve working alongside the Woodland Officer, to get woodlands into sustainable woodland management.

Chainsaw Training

Are you interested in attending a chainsaw course to learn how to fell trees safely and in the right direction? Or do you know someone who's interested? CVLLP Woodland Officer Tabi Kime is organising a course - felling trees up to 15" diameter.
