Calling all members of the UK Greenwood Foresters Association set up by Bob and Grace Darling in the 1960’s … Who’s got the Keys?
As an early Member, I drove down to Greenwood, near Heathfield, and at the entrance of Greenwood there was a padlocked barrier so I couldn’t drive in. As no newsletter is being sent out by the Association any more, I am looking for other members who might know where I can get a key or who put the locked barrier up? Or, is the barrier still there?
Please let me know if you have any information or can be of help.

I promised my mother I’d ask around because she was getting nowhere on web searches and despite them being a friendly bunch in the Durham University Archive department, they really didn’t have the time and resources to start tracking down the answers. So if you are studying Philosophy at Durham at the moment and come across this Doctor, I am sure my mother would be fascinated to know.
She didn’t obviously know him personally but when she was younger she was ‘visited’ by something that I suppose must have been a ghost or a spirit of somesort claiming to be this guy. It was a while back that it happened but in true curiousity, she would be very interested if there was any truth in what ‘he’ said and “Was there a Dr. Jarvis at Durham in 1851 ?
