Welcome to Wildlife in Wood
 
An exhibition of lifesized wood sculptures, depicting many different species of wildlife found on and around Exmoor. Varying in size from dormice to deer, the pieces are cut in local wood by sculptor Mike Leach.

The exhibition has been laid out as a path that winds through different habitats, each supporting its own variety of wildlife depicted by the carvings. Displaying the sculptures in this original and exciting way is designed to bring insight into the nature of Exmoor, into its diversity, its interdependence and into the effect man has upon it.


Mike Leach, whose family farmed here from 1896 until 1987, has lived and worked on Exmoor all his life.
With a great love of wildlife, he naturally draws the inspiration for his carving from the diversity of creatures he sees around him.
