Our theme was inspired by the Viking invasions as they spread throughout the UK forests and innovatively (yet primitively) used timber to build settlements, tools, boats and transport.
Initially four new play areas were designed and installed at Hamsterley Forest:
- The Dragon Boat Swing, a horizontal hawser rope swing suspended from a ‘longboat’ frame.
- A Viking Ghost Ship, a challenging climbing structure for older children containing multi-level climbing elements and a choice of avenues from which to explore the decks. Complete with timber sail and carved squirrel.
- Odin’s Keep, an imaginative social and role-play area with playhouse, picnic benches and a chunky little trim trail.
- Thor’s Workshop, an interactive pebble play zone with a raised central platform to include scoops, shoots, bowls, wobbly ladders and pulleys.
Following the success of these first four play areas, we were invited to design five further play areas to continue the Viking theme:
- Ran’s Home Harbour, an area suitable for younger children consisting of low platform with jettys, balance beams and a basket swing.
- Tyr’s Woodland Fortress, a challenging climbing structure for older children containing higher multi- level climbing element, nets and bridges.
