WoodFestWales has been going for a few years now. It’s a chance to meet makers from all over Snowdonia and North Wales, watch axes being throwing, and buy some beautiful craft works at a fraction of gallery costs. This year it was a lot bigger. It’s such up-scale that it has you looking for the camping field and the live music tents. The crafts people looked a little bewildered at the volume of people passing by. The fairground ride owners looked overjoyed.

Carving on fallen tree, [Eastham Country Park], Wirral

The watcher in the woods, [Eastham Country Park], Wirral

It’s lovely to discover nearby places that have been overlooked in the constant quest for wilderness and adventure. Eastham Country Park on the wirral, although not a natural wilderness by any means, used to be a ferry journey away from Liverpool for well-to-do Victorians in search of bird song and a cup of Earl Grey. Signs of this heritage are nicely mixed with modern day interest, such as these chainsaw carvings dotted along the woodland trails.
