The Working Woodlands Centre aims to support the positive management of our woodlands for the benefit of people and wildlife.  Key to doing this is supporting the local wood and woodland economy - we have three workshop units available to rent suitable for new and small wood- or woodland-related businesses on flexible monthly terms and at affordable rents.  They are ideal as a start-up unit, providing a first step from which to develop your business.

The workshop units are located in a single block in a barrier protected yard at the northern end of Maulden Wood, where limited parking is also available.

The location is convenient and central for the whole of Bedfordshire and surrounding areas, and is close to the A6 which runs between Luton and Bedford.

Two of the workshops, Ash and Maple, are 43m2 (5.4m x 8m) while Hazel is slightly smaller at 30m2.  All have a high ceiling (maximum height = 4m) allowing for the handling of longer lengths of timber. 

The workshops have a shared toilet and washroom facility, and rent covers buildings insurance.  Services will be charged at a rate in line with usage.  Business Rates are payable to Central Bedfordshire Council, but discounts of up to 100% may be negotiated.

Each workshop has a roller-shutter entrance to allow vehicular access.
