This is a short documentary film highlighting the work of the Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership
to restore Planted Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS) within the Faughan Valley, Northern Ireland.
The Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership (funded by the Heritage Lottery scheme) is a partnership
between Derry City Council, The Rural Area Partnership in Derry (RAPID) and the Woodland Trust.
PAWS Officer, Michael Topping, explains the importance of protecting remnant ecological features
and management practices available to restore a healthy woodland environment. Included is
footage from a demonstration day in October 2012, showcasing the use of horse trawling as a
sensitive management practice.
