The Canddo Project

Woodland wellbeing and crafting in a calm and peaceful setting.

About us

We are a woodland project in Torfaen, working towards better outcomes for mental health and isolation issues.

We provide a safe, supportive & friendly environment for adults of all ages, backgrounds and capabilities to come together and enjoy our nature rich wood. Whether it be craft, woodwork, art, woodland managing or just quiet time in natural green spaces – or even just with a brew and friendly faces.

The Canddo Project was born from a need to help combat poor mental health and those who feel isolated within our community. We believe that working together in nature and with a positive sense of community will be a force for good!

There is very limited parking on Chapel Lane and it is suggested that cars are left at home. The nearest bus stop is situated opposite the Ashbridge Restaurant, or the site is a 20 minute walk from Cwmbran train station.

Opening Times

Tuesdays, 10am – 2pm
