This edition includes accounts of two projects concerning local archaeology and the historic landscape.

They were led by professional experts and undertaken by interested volunteers. The numbers taking

part demonstrate the wide interest in this branch of the local heritage. Projects concerning wildlife and

community history are also underway and equally successful. All are funded through the Foresters’ Forest HLF Landscape Partner Scheme.
