Welcome to the SmallWoods Centre...based in Coalbrookdale just a short way from historic Ironbridge, the SmallWoods Centre is an innovative interpretation centre for woodland management, coppicing, sustainable building and other sustainable technologies.

Green Wood Centre

The SmallWoods Centre is part of the national woodland charity, the Small Woods Association.

The SmallWoods through its Green Wood Centre promotes sustainable living through a wood based economy by running courses in woodland management and related activities and making landscape furniture from local FSC timber. The site has one of the UK's most energy efficient timber buildings and is now the national centre for excellence in the field of crafts and coppice.

The Green Wood Centre is home to the Ironbridge Woodland Experience  which includes a 'state of the art' woodland hall, a vegetarian whole-food cafe, Cherries at the Green Wood Centre, serving real food, locally sourced, a retail outlet for coppice products, displays of coppice tools, coracles in all stages of construction and of course woodland walks around the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.

Open daily from Easter 10am - 4pm throughout the Summer (reduced hours through Winter) entry is free

The Green Wood Centre is the first establishment in Shropshire to achieve a Gold award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

Also don't miss the Coracle Regatta at the Ironbridge Rowing Club end of Dale End Park on August Bank Holiday Monday. Fun Coracle Races, Greenwood woriking demonstrations, lots of stalls and food stands. 12.00 - 4.00.
