On a blustery winter’s day, we gathered together at Moccas Park – a space normally closed to the public but one of many Ancients of the Future sites across England. People brought their banners with them and we paraded through the park – holding our banners high!

Celebrating Ancient Trees – Banner Making and parade

Event took place at

Moccas Park

Moccas Park is one of the largest and most diverse examples of wood pasture remaining in Britain. It is the only know location of the incredibly rare Moccas beetle (Hypebaeus Flavipes). Around 45 hectares of new wood pasture has been created by Natural England and Woodland Trust at Moccas Hill Wood where we have funded enclosures and tree guards for native tree and nectar shrub planting. Moccas Park is not normally open to the public, so this was a great opportunity to experience an exciting event in an unfamiliar and beautiful landscape, and learn about the importance of ancient trees.
