New Den Building Frames

We built a lot of den building areas last year, from large multiple frame areas to simple den building frames.

I’ve attached a few photos below of the simple ‘Y’ frames that are very popular with all ages, the frames are usually supplied as part of a kit with lots of hazel sticks, planks and some times canvas and camouflage sheets.

We can supply these in kit form or will be happy to install throughout the UK.

Play Tree

We have just delivered this great play tree to a site in London for a new play area. Cut from a huge wind blown chestnut tree the play feature has lots of hand holds, limbs to climb over and some really nice exposed wood.

Our play trees are sanded to remove rough edges of bark and wood and all cut surfaces are sanded smooth.

This tree measures approximately L 4.5m x W 2m x H 1m, we can supply them to your specification or will be happy to send photos and measurements of the trees we have in stock.

Playground Mound!

We recently finished a project at an amazing nursery school in Huddersfield. Portland House Nurseries provide a really lovely environment for the children, they asked us to revamp the gardens and play equipment to create a natural feeling with lots for the children to explore.

Part of the project was to create a mound with sensory path, log steps and tunnel, see photos below.

New Log Tunnel

We started the year with an epic log tunnel, this oak stump was huge even after we had tidied up the limbs and cut a flat base.

The tunnel has been delivered to its new home at a school in Bristol, now part of a pair.

Early Years Shelter

We recently finished a project in Huddersfield, part of which was the construction of this early years shelter in one of the gardens.

The shelter is built using chestnut poles with a cedar timber roof, the turf is laid on a water proof rubber liner so children can enjoy the shelter in all weathers.

Log Tunnels

We saw a really high demand for our log tunnels last year, many going to primary schools and parks but several even going to a Santa’s grotto!

We make these from huge stumps of either oak or chestnut, they are great fun for children to crawl through, hide in and climb over.
