Park Wood is part of the larger Roman Wood, the wood contains a wealth of oak, fir and hazel. The fir is large and well-grown and towers above the hazel below while the oak crowns spread in contrast to the straight fir. The owners have thoroughly enjoyed their woodland with the cabin, summerhouse and zip wire, but have now moved on allowing a new owner to enjoy the wood. The zip wire and ramp should be tested before use and could also do with re hanginging.

As can be seen from the photos spring sees a wonderful display of bluebells, at the front of the wood is an open area, now with braken, which could be planted up or left open for wild flowers. This woodland is classified as plantation on ancient woodland, ie has many of the characteristics of ancient woodland but includes planted conifer species.

Near to Park Wood is a set of hammer ponds home of 16th-Century Wealden ironwork activity – the huge ponds were used to store water for powering foundry machinery and where cannons and cannon balls for the navies of Tudor kings and queens including Henry VII and Queen Elizabeth I were made.
