Lost woods, Shadow Woods (ONLINE EVENT)

- July 1st, 2020

July 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

This is an online event.

Festival Bowland / Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership are delighted to host Professor Ian Rotherham of Sheffield Hallam University  who will present ‘ Lost woods, Shadow woods.’

Professor Rotherham is the author of numerous books on landscape, history and ecology. He has organised successful conferences on woodland and, more recently, two international conferences on Rewilding.’ No stranger to the Forest of Bowland, Ian studied at the University of Lancaster.  

Ian will introduce the concept of  ‘lost woods’. Lost woods may not appear on maps as woodlands, or even have names but can be indicators of former land-use over hundreds of years. There will be a second part of this series ‘, An Introduction to Rewilding’ in the autumn, based on a book he is currently writing.
