Below are selected images from project activities run during Q4 2018 as part of the history & heritage of the High Lodge site project by the Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF).
GCSE students from Saffron Walden County High found the trail thoroughly useful in deepening their understanding on the Human Impact on ecosystems. We were at Thetford forest to carry out Field Work in Sampling species and comparing different types of woodland. The trail that we followed allowed us to clearly see the contrasting different types of woodland and also to clearly see the different abiotic conditions that occurred as a result of different forestry methods. The additional context, on the archaeological and historical context of the area that Anne was able to provide was also invaluable as this enabled students to appreciate the differences that humans can have on the ecosystem.
