Horse Logging in Angling Spring Wood

In October this year an experiment was carried out to see if it would be possible to use horses to drag logs out of the wood after trees had been felled.

Horses do not damage the ground anything like as much as large machinery but are much slower and more labour intensive.

Unfortunately the operation proved to be too costly to be used on a larger scale.
