Old coppicing photos

Yesterday we had a visit from John, a local retired forester. He brought some photos taken about 30 years ago, when he used to work in a wood near ours. He said it was quite different back then - no rules and regulations, you just got on with your work, built what you needed in the woods and nobody bothered you. I guess things have changed, some beneficial, some not, as always... Here's the pictures anyway (they're photos taken of old printed photos, so quality's not amazing).

Making palings - note the the shelters they built to use while working:
The finished product:
