Charcoal making event

11 July 2015  10:00 - 16:00
Learn how to make charcoal in your own back yard. Learn to make your own charcoal with just a few basic tools and some simple equipment at a workshop run by the Dartmoor-based Sustainable Coppice Partnership on Saturday, 11 July. Suitable for people of all ages and abilities, the one-day course takes place in the Partnership’s beautiful “outdoor classroom” based in heritage coppice woodland near Yelverton. Charcoal takes a while to “cook”, so this special working woodland event includes learning how to make fun things out of greenwood from the hazel found in the coppice. There’s a chance, too, to help build a traditional “dead hedge” for wildlife and woodland management. “Whether you’re a young enthusiast or an old hand,” says Project Manager, Dr Tean Mitchell, “we’re sure you will enjoy yourself and have a wonderful day in the woods.” “It is shocking that much of the charcoal the public buy, in all innocence, is made from the tropical hardwood,” says Tean. “Apart from the terrible habitat destruction involved, there is a huge waste of energy in transporting it thousands of miles to a filling station near you!” The workshop uses wood harvested, prepared and dried on site. So, no fuel miles either. Once you’ve been on this course you should have the skills you need (neighbours allowing!) to make charcoal for yourself. Everybody also gets to take home a bag of the charcoal unloaded from a cooled-down kiln and bagged up ready for use. Use it for this summer’s barbeques or just to put it on your garden as an organic soil conditioner. “Coppice felling can only be carried out when the trees are dormant in winter,” says Tean. “And we have to make sure we don’t cause disturbance for birds when they nest. But that doesn’t mean we abandon the woods for the summer. Processing the wood that has been felled and making greenwood products – traditional and modern – keeps us busy all year round.” There will be plenty of opportunities during the workshop to learn more about the Partnership’s coppice restoration work on Dartmoor and how traditional coppicing is sustainable woodland management at its best.
Location  Yelverton - exact location confirmed at time of booking  Booking: Yes  Charge: The cost of the workshop is £55 per person which includes all tools, protective wear, insurance and, of course, tea and cake for everyone.

Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse

18 July 2015  10:30 - 12:30
Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse. A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott is a grade one listed building of rare and national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. One of the things that makes Higher Uppacott so special is that its development from its medieval beginnings through to the present day is still clearly evident within the fabric of the building. This development also vividly illustrates the major changes in domestic family life and the social structures of Dartmoor farming folk over the centuries. Event suitable for children age 8+.

Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse

2 August 2015  10:30 - 12:30
Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse. A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott is a grade one listed building of rare and national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. One of the things that makes Higher Uppacott so special is that its development from its medieval beginnings through to the present day is still clearly evident within the fabric of the building. This development also vividly illustrates the major changes in domestic family life and the social structures of Dartmoor farming folk over the centuries. Event suitable for children age 8+.

Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse

29 August 2015  10:30 - 12:30
Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse. A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott is a grade one listed building of rare and national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. One of the things that makes Higher Uppacott so special is that its development from its medieval beginnings through to the present day is still clearly evident within the fabric of the building. This development also vividly illustrates the major changes in domestic family life and the social structures of Dartmoor farming folk over the centuries. Event suitable for children age 8+.
Location  Meet at Bel Tor Corner car park near Poundsgate  Booking: Yes  Charge: Adults £5.00, Children 14 & under free
