Sence Valley Forest Park is situated on the outskirts of Ibstock, North West Leicestershire.   each year we visit in summer for the Open Day, we have watched it grow from small saplings and see the changes year on year,  lots of working crafts,  we all sit and spin,  it used to be just 2 or 3 of us, this year 7 spinners and wheels,

Shearing Day, June 2010

Lovely day out and what a treat to see and choose the fleece,  we are made most welcome,  hope we don't get in the way but the day is such good fun,  I could hardly get my car-boot closed with all the lovely wool inside,   not all mine,  I was bringing some for friends who had to be at work on the day.
