This illustrated talk will explain what is meant by an ancient woodland and how extensive they are in the UK and the Wye valley. Andrew De La Haye will explain why ancient woodlands are important to human life and wellbeing, what natural and archaeological features they have and what we can do to enjoy and support them. The talk will also explain the role of the Woodland Trust in preserving ancient woodland.
