Sparks in the Dark

Spring is nearly here! The birds are singing to each other, the daffs are nearly out, and everyone is finally over that cold they’ve had for the last 6 weeks.

But! Remember last November as the nights were drawing in? We had a great time chasing away the darkness with our lanterns and furnaces on Wincobank Hill as part of the Light up the Hill event.

Volunteer Film maker Martin Currie sent a group of young people off with cameras to record the event, and this is the result of their excellent camera work and Martin’s production skills.

Proof that without darkness there would be no light!

Living History in Ecclesall Woods

We have made a video of the Woods through our sister project – Ecclesall Wood Land  – also funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Ecclesall Woods is South Yorkshire’s largest Ancient Woodland, and this video shows us how people have used the woods over the centuries, and how they are using it now. Enjoy! If you want to find out more, come and join us on the Wilderness Skills Course next week!
