An ancient semi-natural woodland, home to wildflowers and many birds
This ancient semi-natural woodland is a feast for the senses in spring, with a good show of bluebells, honeysuckle and wood sorrel. Come back in autumn for a different display…
The wood is alive with birds: you might spot wood warbler, pied flycatcher, redstart, redpoll or tawny owl.
There are no waymarked trails here: you are welcome to explore the forest as you wish.
