Welcome! Moors Wood is a small private woodland owned and managed by Sarah and Ian Blenkinsop as a nature reserve and as a sustainably managed source of various wood products.

Sarah is a freelance Environmental Educator, Lecturer and Forest School Leader. Based at her own site at Moors Wood, Sarah provides fun natural/recycled craft workshops; play or storytelling sessions; eco themed parties; workshops on food preservation, setting up an organic garden, setting up a composting area or keeping chickens; or training courses in various woodcraft and play skills. These services are available for adults and/or children. Sarah is also very happy to come to you and deliver any of the above, or to give talks to groups.

Chicken keeping courses and sales.


If you or your school/nursery is considering keeping some chickens (and many do!) I am an experienced and enthusiastic chicken keeper and have been a Garden Organic Hens@home mentor and an Omlet Eglu chicken keeper course host.

I will show you how to clean out an Eglu or other wooden hen house, hold a chicken, feed, water and care for it along with some basic feeding, health and welfare advice. 

I can advise on different house and run set ups, also how to plan an area to keep your chickens safe and healthy.

I run chicken keeping workshops and can bring along some miniature chickens (Seramas) to show you.

I also occasionally have chickens for sale - contact me for availability.

And I sell eggs!
