Welcome to Underwood Discovery Centre



The Underwood Discovery Centre (UDC) is an education experience based in a converted barn. The centre is located in woodland on an organic farm, where the land overlooks Start Bay and runs down to the coast at Beesands. Our aim is to demonstrate how to farm and live in a sustainable manner whilst reducing our carbon footprint.




To develop the centre we are using recyclable materials such as metal, bricks, timber, crushed concrete, paper and sustainable materials such as straw, stone, timber, cob, willow and wool. This reduces the need for unsustainable resources. We only use totally renewable energy at UDC.




The Underwood Discovery Centre is connecting sustainable farming, energy, building and the environment with education. Come along and see how you can help make a difference!
