Stock Gaylard Oak Fair

I spent the day here yesterday, here are a few pics to give a flavour of the day. Lots of very interesting people to talk to about straw bale building, charcoal making, besom brooms, cider, cheese.............and of course a huge amount of wood, which is what it's all about.

Loved the Hall & Woodhouse pop up inflatable pub

The evocative sight of smoke from a charcoal burn

Copy of what they think is a still, unearthed in a dig in the Czech republic, and ongoing experiment

Scything demonstrations

Very good fishcakes for lunch, and some excellent local cider

Prize winning sheep and their rosettes :)

Watching the skep making is one of my favourites
