Welcome to the Broadrake self-help group page.

2023 meetings are scheduled for the following dates, normally 2nd Weds from Sept-May months, with a summer break. Please note that there may be changes to the meeting dates due to overnight bunkbarn bookings, but we will amend the dates if necessary.

  • 8th March
  • 12th April
  • 10th May
  • 13th September
  • 4th October
  • 15th November
  • December Date TBC

The venue is Broadrake, Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleton, N.Yorks, LA6 3AX in the Yorkshire Dales. Directions on the website

The sessions will run from 9.45 am-ish to 3 pm-ish; we make a small charge(£5 max.) for heating costs during winter months and a willow charge will be worked out according to costs. Bring your own tools if you have them, although there will be spare secateurs and I'm happy to share other tools. Tea, coffee & biscuits/home-baking provisions are available, but please bring your own lunch.

This self-help group stems from those who have attended previous willowy workshops at Broadrake and want to improve their skills or find new willow challenges to work through together. We will be happy to see anyone from NBG who maybe lives in the more southern parts of the North!

If you would like to be involved or wish to join this group, please email the group coordinator (contact details below), who will be happy to help.
