Structures in the woods

On a walk with friends in Oxleas wood this gloriously sunny afternoon, we came across quite a few man-made structures. Has there been some sort of camping party in the woods. The most solid was the one above which the kids loved.
There was also a sunken square that seemed some sort of water feature. Does anyone know what it is?

Also came across some trees with parts of their barks removed. These could be the basis of some tree based sculptures if we could get a local artist interested (though may have to wait until recession is over as money should go to Park Rangers and not faffy art!)

Finally, the sunshine gave the whole area a lovely misty look. I can't wait to go back when the bluebells are around.

the woods are pretty colourful at the moment, someone has planted crocus bulbs near the walled garden, and the daffodils are out too.

i like the bluebells in the woods opposite the garden centre - i think the farm organise bluebell walks actually, although not sure whereabouts.

Ah I'll look that up. Also think I should do one of the ranger walks as I reckon they would know what the things are in the woods
