Restoring ancient woodland in mid-Wales case study, September 2016

This case study is about the ancient woodland being restored at Coed Mitchen in the hills of Mid Wales.

It shows how the restoration is not only bringing wildlife back to the woodland, but is allowing owner Nick Burton to train others to extract timber using horses.

Though the work is challenging, Nick is determined to restore his woodland to its former glory.
