ABOUT THE WOOD:
A wide range of nature education activities take place in Drayton Woods situated near Langport in South Somerset, with people of all ages and backgrounds benefiting from experiences in native woodland.
Our Forest School Base camp is on the woodland edge. A campfire and canopy area provide welcome shelter and space to make refreshments.
A small green woodworking area is used to make benches, mallets, pegs, spoons and other useful items.
All activities are run on the Forest School model:
- promoting a sense of belonging,
- developing self esteem
- encouraging child led play
- self directed activity.
We are supported by Drayton Parish Council and Drayton Street Fair, as well as Somerset County Council and various community trusts and grant giving schemes.
- holiday playschemes,
- pre-school and primary school visits,
- youth club visits,
- adult craft training,
- community conservation
- inclusive provision & wheelchair access
inclusive activities for disabled children, young people and adults
The woodland site is wheelchair accessible and (thanks to support from SCC Short Breaks team) has wheelchair accessible facilities and compost toilet.
The small woodland is just under 3 acres and is securely fenced, making it an ideal secure site for free roaming and safe exploration.
