Made from Wood

My visit to Tyntesfield gave me the opportunity to make a start on one of the items that Mary Lou has put on her Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt. She has kindly taken on the hunt this year and No.15 on the list is Something Crafted from Wood.
The old farm buildings at Tyntesfield that would have been Home Farm in it's heyday are now made into the Visitor centre. Close to the ticket office in the former farmyard are the premises of the Somerset Bodgers who work with the public making items from green wood that has been sourced on the estate. This character is one of their creations.

We made another discovery at one of the children's play areas where giant garden visitors created from wood adorn the area.
A slug.


And snail.

The wonderful creations are being gently polished by the children as they play on them. It took me quite a while to take these pictures patiently waiting for children to move on!


  1. Those play sculptures in wood were great and as you say, improving with use as they are gently polished!

  2. All of those are great examples of someone's talent with woodworking.
