Compton Wood is light and spacious, well stocked woodland situated near the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon. 

Towering poplar are dominant throughout the site but also hazel, ash, young oak, holly, grey willow, hawthorne and chestnut can also be found. The well spaced poplar allows lots of light to penetrate the woodland floor creating a diverse array of grasses and flora.

There are lots of flat open glades within the wood and a small camp area is in situ with a pleasant bench to sit and enjoy the surroundings. The woodland is very secluded and there is no public access through or near the larger Bowshot Wood, of which Compton is part. 

Locally, Compton Verney is just a short walk away offering a wealth of cultural activities throughout the year. The small town of Wellesbourne with shops and restaurants, is just a short drive. Stratford-upon-Avon is within easy reach. 

Ward is Wellesbourne East and the County Council is Warwickshire

Boundaries: The boundary is fenced to the east following the road. To the west, north and south the boundary is open and marked with red paint.
