Wilder Woods

Central Somerset Outdoor Learning Partnership

Hallr Wood

Hallr Wood is a small, south facing, steeply sloping, amenity woodland (nearly 7 acres) near Somerton. Whilst retaining its wildness, we are also lucky to have some fantastic infrastructure that allows us to host all kinds of events, in all kinds of weather.

We have a green woodworking workshop, woodland stage, various shelters, a rustic kitchen/cafe, pizza oven, Romano- British style pottery kiln, and compost toilets. We do have a car parking area, but for larger events we are grateful to be able to use the Parish Car Park at Charlton Mackrell School, a ten minute walk away.

We run a diverse range of programmes all year around, including long term secondary provision, therapeutic interventions, curriculum enrichment, Wilder Play family sessions, holiday play, overnight hammock camps, workshops and training for schools, and bespoke sessions for a range of groups and organizations.

We have an Open Day each year and have also run other community events including holiday play and our regular Punkie Night with support from the Somerset Inclusion Team.

We are grateful for links with various voluntary sector, conservation and also land based training organizations who help us with funding and support us to provide bespoke provision and work experience for our older participants.   (https://www.blaketraining.co.uk/) And to Clear Rising for mental health support.

We have a very long history with Somerset Community Foundation.

We are grateful to be linked to our fabulous local saw mill http://www.land-logic.co.uk/

We are linked to https://sweet-track-counselling.co.uk/ who we work with to offer Ecotherapy Workshops.

We enjoy a strong partnership with ACE Arts in Somerton. https://www.acearts.co.uk/
