‘What’s in a West Berkshire Wood?’


Our woods have always been there! But have they?  

   Dick’s new book takes us back to the Ice Age and explains where trees, plants and animals - including humans – survived and how they spread back to Britain. He then tells how they developed, how they were used by the communities around them and how to spot the signs of this use in our modern woods.

   Finally he suggests ways of ‘really getting to know’ a wood.
