Our temporary sign is up at The Club at Holbrook!

We will be busy in December and January setting up some infrastructure in the woodland.

Holbrook House has extensive Security Cameras on their grounds, so hopefully we won’t be experiencing what we did at the Zeals Site. We are still a little saddened that the minority ruined it for all, at Zeals.

#bunkerbushcraft has been pretty quiet recently. It’s because we are working very hard in the background. Here is a sneek peek at our new woodland at the Club at Holbrook.

A staggering 2300 species are known to be associated with oak, and that doesn’t include all of the fungi, and any of bacteria and other micro-organisms which use oak!

To describe our new green space…it is abundant with so many species of animal, fauna, trees and some protected Blue Bells!

Oaks - consist of 38 bird species, 229 bryophytes, 108 fungi, 1178 invertebrates, 716 lichens and 31 mammals. Of these species, 320 are only found on oak and a further 229 species are rarely found on species other than oak. These 549 species are the species identified as being most at risk if oak trees decline due pest, disease and/or climate change.

I think I’ve posted this previously, it is pretty amazing though…If you saw this in on a bush or a tree, would you know that it was living? Meet the "Bagworm Caterpillar". It collects and saws little sticks to construct elaborate spiral log cabins to live in. These small creatures begin as moths. Once they hatch they immediately begin constructing elaborate shields for themselves for protection, often times looking like log cabins. They build their homes out of silk, sand, soil, and plant materials. If you look very closely, you can see the strands that it used to tie the structure together. Bagworm moths make their homes in many types of trees, especially cedar trees. Larvae crawl to nearby plants and their bags can be seen hanging on trees that they feed on. Some may spin a silk thread that catches the wind and carries them off to new trees. The natural world is filled with such wonder! 🐛 🙌🌎😍🌳 ... See MoreSee Less

Wow, it's things like this that just confirm in my heart that there must be an intelligent creator! Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God - Hebrews 3:4

Good to see you reopening soon and will be visiting you this year. Great post. I’d add one more note that all these things should be reciprocal, with businesses helping each other. 🙂

So glad you are opening!!! Good luck!

Good luck buddy, great to see you getting up and running your passion again!

A tree has fallen and killed one of our dog poop bins 😢 It has been cleaned up and please bear with us until the bin is replaced.

If you are walking through the woodland, please be aware of any potential deadfall, especially when it is windy/gusty.

The woodland is private land and we accept no responsibility for anyone using it that is not enrolled on one of our Bushcraft Sessions.

But did it make a sound? 🤔

Pleased to let people know that Zeals/Bunker Bushcraft will be featured on Channel 4 on 20th April 2021. The exact time will be confirmed soon.

I gave an account of the history of the Zeals Airfield and also made a fire with the programmes contestants.

I’m not sure what will be shown after editing, but the filming took place at the Bunkers in the woods in Zeals near Forge Lane.
