Our woodland provides a space for craftspeople, volunteers, archaeologists and members of the public to discover more about the lives of people from our shared past.
It is a working woodland, which has been ever evolving over the years, with an aim of becoming a centre for ancient and traditional crafts, knowledge sharing and experimental archaeology. Explore the Education page for more information.
The team who run the site have backgrounds in forestry, archaeology, traditional woodworking, forest schooling, farming and timber framing.
We use our woodland as a studio, an experimental building site, a timber resource and a classroom.
We are looking to kick off 2021 with a new regular fortnightly volunteer programme for those committed to preserving traditional crafts and interested in learning ancient skills.
We are looking to expand our team of treewrights to help turn Newhaven Coppice into the hub of experimental archaeology it is destined to be.
