    Are you making any plans for the Snow?

    There seems to be a good dump of snow coming over the next 36 hours, in addition to what may already be laying in your area.

    Exmoor next week - what to do?

    After a bit of advice from the West Country folk, if possible? We are staying in a little National Trust Cottage for four days next week, and I’ve been compiling a list of places we should visit. The Cottage is just north of Barnstaple, so anywhere in Exmoor or north Devon coast is fair game...

    Chainsaw Training

    Apologies if this is in the wrong forum - seemed like the best one to me... I've managed to secure access and firewood rights in a broadleaf wood owned by a neighbour of mine. There is enough wood in there to last me for many years - it hasn't been managed in a long time. The snag is that the...
