Friends of the centre

Rookery Woods is full of incredibly detailed wood carvings, and all are created individually from British wood with a chainsaw by the immensely talented Simon Jackson from Wood Actually.

From a Hulk to Harry Hare, Mushrooms to Maurice Mole, a herd of colourful Sheep, a Wellie Tree, a Hungry Heifer and many, many more creations, Rookery Woods is full of Simon’s amazing wood sculptures.

Come and see how many you can spot and you can even purchase one  to take home: you can order or buy your very own Wood Actually sculpture at Keswick Climbing Wall or check out their website and order direct  :
