Truly one of the best of woodlands, containing mature broadleaves, a small plantation of Scots pine, regeneration following conifer removal and new planting.  The broadleaves form the basis of the wood and are designated as ancient and semi-natural (ASNW), the Scots pine - one of our native conifers - is a worthy contrast with year round colour associated with its own assemblage of woodland birds. They are long-lived. The relatively new planting, now beyond 'pole' stage is in a vigorous growth stage and its development can be seen year by year. The natural regeneration - now considered as ASNW - is mostly silver birch and will provide an ideal source of firewood as it is thinned to create more space.

Set well away from any road, surrounded by large area of woodland it is sheltered and private.


Along the northside there is an ancient woodbank, the east there is a ditch, fence and bank against the pasture, along the south and west sides the boundary is the trackside.


There is a combination lock on the forest gate. Please phone Bob Liles, saying who you are, on 07793 140010 to obtain the code. Please take a copy of these particulars with you. Please do not park by the gate but take your vehicle into the wood.
