BRINGING WOODLANDS TO LIFE

About the Green Wood Centre

The Green Wood Centre is based in Coalbrookdale, just a short way from historic Ironbridge, and provides an innovative headquarters for Small Woods, set in the woods of the Ironbridge Gorge.

We promote sustainable living through a wood-based economy by running courses and events in sustainable woodland management, coppicing, crafts and related activities. Our activities at the Centre include woodland volunteering projects, fun family sessions and woody events for the whole community.

The inspiring Woodland Hall, available for hire, has sweet chestnut pillars, a peaceful environment and an energy efficient design which make it a perfect venue for a wide range of events. The site is also home to the Green Wood Cafe, a retail outlet for coppice products, the woodland craft area, woodland camp and year-round access to woodland walks around the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.
