Minishant Primary Willow Structures

East Ayrshire Woodlands were asked to renovate an old structure someone had done several
years before and the new design incorporated a willow 'extension' in a Grand Designs goes
willow sort of way. The plan hatched was to try and save the old tunnel and make it usable &
to create the new features with archways, a new tunnel, central dome and outer fences.
