Meet Peter Wade. He was born in Limpsfield and has lived all his life in Oxted. Peter volunteers for the National Trust and he is the creator of the mini woodland houses on Limpsfield Common.
“I’ve always had an infinity with the countryside and being in the woods. It was whilst volunteering for the National Trust and clearing woodland that I came up with the idea of using the wood to create mini houses. So far I’ve created Hedgehog Hall, Badger Barracks, Fox Villa, Mouse House, Owl House, Peter Rabbit’s Postbox, Squirrel Nutkins Swing and Gresham Church. All the wood I’ve used to make the houses has been scrap wood. It’s wonderful to see families out exploring the houses and hearing the children’s laughter. There are so many benefits of being in woodland, it’s a stimulus for me and offers total relaxation”.
