A new dragon emerges in Spindleberry Nature Park in Oxford

Stuart Turner the land artist responsible for creating the Magdalen Wood dragon has started work on a new living willow dragon in Spindleberry Nature Park in Oxford this week.  Thanks to Tesco bags of help and TOE2 for funding, and OPA, Oxford City Council and of course Going Wild for making it happen!

Over the next few months she will grow into an amazing Wild Adventure Playground!  We will be posting photos as she grows…..!
