I wonder if there are still charcoal burners around Camberley? The woods were never coppiced, I think, although I could be wrong……..
When we walk through our woodlands we can often see evidence of coppicing carried out in times gone by. Through the years our coppices have been neglected and unmanaged. Nowadays, there has been an increasing interest/enthusiasm to return these areas to something more useful. This charcoal kiln is a demonstration of this. At one time, I would never see one, nowadays, while not common they are not so unusual.
