It was interesting to see all the different grades of charcoal that is produced and what they are used for -from BBQ to medicine!
Jim from the Dorset Charcoal Company was unloading a kiln that did not burn successfully and as he quite rightly says, it does not always go according to plan – brown ends anyone?
The Dorset rescue unit with one very lucky hedgehog.
Tony and Janine Hoad demonstrating horse logging with a very pretty Fleur (the horse not Peter Jameson).
The first cast iron rounder / stail engine I have seen: used for rounding handles.
Local Master thatchers Tony and Mark Cottrell were demonstrating thatching and spar making.
Paul Vodden was making hay rakes.
