Del and I love nothing more than Walking, especially in Woods. Trees hold a special attraction for both of us. There’s a special energy you feel on entering a wood .Each Wood has its own and all feel very different. Hopefully that is why you will find some information about Trees on this site and little bits of information on the woods we use to create the Drums, Beaters and more importantly the wands.

If you’d like to experience the same, find a wood near you and take some time to relax there. Sit and feel the Energy, see how the wood feels. What Trees draw you to them?

Her are some of our favourite woods we have visited. If you have any wood or Places you love we'd like to here from you.
