Description  Conifer PAWS and semi-natural ancient woodland occupying the summit and slopes of an historic 'mound' in beautiful deep Devon countryside. As will be seen the trees grow well here especially on the fertile lower slopes. Exposed shale on the slopes is ideal for forming more tracks, turning areas and clearings although the wood is well 'roaded' with good internal access. The mixed conifers originate from the 1960's, the oak from early 1900's in contrast to the recent planting of Sitka spruce, Douglas fir and mixed broadleaves.

Access  -  there is a right of way for all times and for all purposes from the public highway along the woodland track as far as Burley Cottage at which point the wood is entered.
