Description  The headwaters of the river Lark - it rises just a few hundred metres further west - flow through the centre of the wood providing a wonderful feature. Surrounded by mature trees the wood was planted some 20 years ago with oak, ash, small-leaved lime, silver birch and shrubs including spindle, hazel, hawthorn and sloe. There are now well-grown with a closed canopy. The explorer ordnance survey maps still show Lark Wood as open ground, which it certainly isn't!

A small pond was created at planting time and although rather overgrown now could easily be opened up. The resident deer make good us of the stream, their slots are seen at the stream edge, for a recognition guide CLICK here.

Summer growth is at its maximum so do take care when walking through the open ground not to step into the steam bed.

Sporting rights, are included

Access is directly off the public highway, Rede Road and a track runs down the whole of the eastern boundary from the rather elderly metal gate - this track is also a public footpath.
