Our Next Event

Nature Writer, Derek Niemann will Introduce and Sign A Tale of Trees, The Battle to Save Britainís Ancient Woodland

Tuesday 08 November 2016
7:30 pm

A Tale of Trees features the voices of those who cut down the woods and those who saved what was left. It is a story full of tragedy and heroism, ingenuity and blindness. And it will inspire the reader to go out and explore more ancient woods, and delight in our natural treasures.

We are a nation that loves its ancient woods and trees. We prize our sturdy oaks, craggy pines, bluebells and primroses, badgers and dormice. We value the history and heritage of places that have been woodland since before the Norman Conquest. But only a generation ago we were all set to wipe them out. It was said that in the space of just 30 years, nearly half of our ancient woods were destroyed. How and why did this happen? And who prevented them all being lost?

Derek Niemann is a nature writer and editor, now freelance after 25 years working for the RSPB. He is the author of Nazi in the Family and Birds in a Cage. Derek has also written a number of wildlife books for children, as well as columns for the Guardian.

Tickets are £4, which are deductible from the cost of the paperback book (£14.99) if purchased on the evening.
