A hornbeam woodland where the tree cover provides habitat for a variety of species, including tawny owls and wood ants. It also includes specimens of Britain's rarest native tree, the wild service tree. Its natural scenic beauty is enhanced in spring by an unbroken carpet of bluebells. Accompanying the hornbeam are oak and sweet chestnut with silver birch. Hornbeam is perhaps one of our most under-rated trees, originally grown for firewood and charcoal its place was taken by the introduction of cheap coal. Hornbeam in this area would probably have supplied London with fuel. Richard Mabey in Flora Britannica notes that in spring with the aid of a stethoscope the pulse of rising sap can be heard and is most 'thunderous in the hornbeam'.
