Actor to take families pond dipping
18th century landowner to return to woodland
An actor will play the part of 18th century Bishop Coplestone during a family pond dip at the Woodland Education Centre in Offwell.
The ‘bishop’ is returning to the grounds of his former home to see the remarkable wetland wildlife and habitats - his lasting legacy, established 200 years ago.
A spokesman for the centre said: “You can help the bishop keep a record of all the wildlife he has in and around his ponds and lakes.”
The free event will take place during morning and afternoon sessions on Wednesday, August 15.
