So by the end of December all 420 trees donated by the Woodland Trust will have been planted. Another community day is in the pipeline for early next year, when trees  donated by Durham County Council, Durham Hedgerow Partnership, will be planted along the hedgeline, so why not come and join us and experience the allure of Thornley Wood. Watch facebook and twitter for dates and times.

Thornley Wood is owned by Wolsingham Parish Council who, in early 2016, approached Durham Wildlife Trust’s Heart of Durham Project, for advice and help in management of the site.
