Woods

Monkton Woods

These woods were where the last bodger in the Chilterns, Owen Dean, was recorded by photographer Frank Ghysens in 1958.

The photos of Mr Dean can be seen on the Chiltern Society website.

Another bodger working in the Chilterns has also been recorded as part of the special trees project. Mr Wells from Highmoor made rolling pins as well as chair legs and stretchers.

Monkton Wood inspired local artists to create the following artworks which were submitted into the 2008 Special Woods Art Competition:

'Industrial Heritage' by Ann Sanderson
