North Wood Meet - Oct 2010

North Wood Bushcraft Meet Site
This was my first visit to North Wood, and may I say, a very plesant site it was! Based just outside North East Birmingham, its a great location to get too! North Wood has a broad range of tree types, and as I found for the time of year, a huge range of fungi to spot also.
The guys at North Wood are very welcoming and a great social bunch who arnt afraid to to spark up a conversation, Bushcraft or otherwise!
