The Woodvilles are a living history and battle re-enactment group covering the “Wars of the Roses” period.
Founded in the early nineties the group draws members from all over the United Kingdom. The group has gone from strength to strength in recent years, becoming increasingly more ‘authentic’ and gaining many more members.
They try to not only present “living history” and combat displays but also to have an abundance of background information, so they may explain to the public what it was really like living in the fifteenth century.
They are supported at this event by members of several other Households of the Wars of the Roses Federation
More information on us may be found on:-
They hope you enjoy theirs and the other displays

Built in 1728 Burford House and its beauiful gardens have been open to the public since 1958. At one point in the garden is the spot where the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire meet. The countryside around theses three counties is both beautiful and rich in wild edible plants and fungi. On the outskirts of Tenbury Wells, it is within easy reach of Ludlow, Leominster, Bromyard, Kidderminster, Hereford, Worcester, Bridgnorth and Shrewbury.
We will meet outside the cafe at Burford House. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers. Tea or coffee is available from the cafe.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the grounds of Burford House park and along the River Teme, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
Beginning in April, we will have monthly visitor days where we welcome everyone to come along and see what we’re all about.

On that day fathers who travel on the popular mid-Wales steam railway with one or more of their children will pay only £5.50 return for each ticket, the standard fare for children aged 3-15 (as always, children under three travel free). This compares to the standard adult return fare of £14.50.
The offer applies to multiple generations – grandfather, father and child riding together will need only three £5.00 tickets. And if there is a great-grandfather in the party, he travels for free! He really deserves it.
Any dads that come along for the Fathers’ Day trip will also be offered a tour of the workshop. Unfortunately we can’t take children into the workshop, but perhaps mum could help out here?
The 16th June timetable features two return trips from Welshpool Raven Square, at 11.15 and 14.05, and three from Llanfair Caereinion at 10.00, 13.00 and 15.30. We expect the day to be busy, so dads wanting to take advantage of the offer are advised to guarantee their space by booking online on this website (select 16th June on the timetable page and follow the instructions), where the child’s ticket is only £4.50. Dads should just book themselves a child’s ticket along with the tickets for the children.
