Nene Coppicing & Crafts

Nene Coppicing & Crafts is a voluntary group dedicated to promoting heritage woodland skills, conservation and crafts. Join the group for event days, volunteering, and to buy locally and sustainably produced goods. Nene Coppicing & Crafts has grown out of a funded project run by the independent charity Peterborough Environment City Trust.

Join us for our regular Woodland Heritage Conservation and Craft Days, every Thursday and last Saturday of the month, 10am-4pm, and learn traditional skills associated with our ancient woodlands in Bretton.
