English Literature Inspires Heritage Craftsman
As a teenager, instead of sitting in front of a screen playing the latest game Jack Holden discovered English Literature. He went on to study a degree in English Literature at the University of Cumbria, but on qualifying realised that a life indoors was not where he should be. Inspired by Lake district authors such as Ruskin, Wordsworth and Coleridge he sought a life outdoors. He won a place on the Bill Hogarth Memorial Apprenctichsip Trust (BHMAT) scheme and is now training in coppice crafts. I followed him over a period of a few weeks this summer as he created an oak gate. These photos show the manufacturing process from the felling of a tree to the installation of the finished gate at a Lakeland farm house. You can see more details on Jack's website here
