About us


Our inaugural meeting at Hales Wood, Saffron Walden, Essex, 4th October, 2015

The East Anglian Coppice network, a loose network of coppice workers in East Anglia,
met for the first time in October 2015, under the guidence of Paul Vodden
and hosted by Andy Basham at Hales Wood, Essex.

We are members of the National Coppice Federation,
and various other like minded groups (under Links), and attend events
to network and spread the coppice word.
As a group we meet 3 times a year, each time at a
different member’s place/wood, which encompasses
a wide geography,  from south Essex to North Norfolk
and west cambridgeshire.

Our Constitution is here
