Connecting Copses

The woodlands that dominate the north western corner of the Down to the Coast landscape are unique in the UK for their populations of red squirrel, dormice and Bechstein's bat. They have a rich industrial heritage, having been a source of timber for shipbuilding and charcoal production over many centuries. This project is all about raising awareness of and conserving this fantastic natural and cultural heritage and brings the Forestry Commission and the Isle of Wight Council's Archaeological Service together to achieve these goals.
