Tuesday 4th October – visit to Stuart King in High Wycombe Buckinghamshire.


This was my first visit to Stuart and his lovely workshop. I was collecting examples of pole lathed and green wood work for our display at the forthcoming Wizardry in Wood exhibition at Carpenters Hall 12-15th October.

I was not expecting any traffic but the company working on the road had failed to inform the bus company.

Much to the amusement of the locals - this turned into a proficiency test for reversing a bus half a mile round all the parked cars. 

Stuart has access to some great local woods which are full of history early English, Roman and medieval.

This is a dell – the dip left after clay removal one of three in the wood.

Stuart and friends have been digging to find the evidence of Roman roads and earlier ditches. I can’t wait to return next summer.
