The Charcoal Burners's Camp

The camp is situated in the woodlands, adjacent to the Centre and is where demonstrations of traditional turf and earth charcoal burning take place.

The charcoal burners hut is used during these burns as a place of shelter and sleep for those doing the night shifts. See our events page for more dates and times of the charcoal burn demonstrations.
