IF you go down to the woods later this month, you're sure of a great day out.

Hamsterley Forest is hosting a discovery day on Sunday, March 30, as part of a national event to get more people exploring England's woodlands.

Organised by Forestry Commission England, the event aims to offer an insight into the past and present of timber production and a look at the wildlife living among the trees.

Hamsterley Forest, in County Durham, is offering free parking on the day and visitors can also try their hand at building a den.

Ian Gambles, director of Forestry Commission England, said: “Woods and forests are great for people and wildlife, as well as supporting the timber trade.

“Forest Discovery Day is all about sharing the good work the Forestry Commission does with visitors and encouraging people who may have not visited for a while to take time to enjoy their local woodlands.”
