Countryside students visited Skipton Castle woods to hear from Hazel Birdsall, the visitor experience officer for the Woodland Trust.

Hazel explained to the students the principles of visitor interpretation from signage to willow sculptures and story benches.

The students toured the woods where they discussed the "Spirit" of the site and by the end, they fully appreciated all of the work and careful design that is required to interpret a site sympathetically.

The visit finished with an opportunity to question Hazel over mugs of hot chocolate a warming end to a frosty visit.

Gillian Thom, the tutor, said: "We all enjoyed Hazel's enthusiasm and wealth of knowledge and the glimpses of herons and a kingfisher."
