Description   To be found in the centre of a large native oak and chestnut woodland Upper Chalybeate Wood is a delight of nature. The wide areas of bluebells found in these woods can be enjoyed in spring. Bird song at that time of year is particularly strong here. High forest, mostly wide-spreading oaks, occupy the high ground while the seasonal stream cuts through the wood in a northerly direction. The wood is classified as a site of special scientific interest,  Click here for info on the SSSI

Guidance for the management for these valuable habitats has been provided by Natural England and can be access by clicking here, Management recommendations from Natural England.  The woodland here hosts a good community of woodland owners, cooperating and enjoying the help and assistance from Natural England to manage their woods.
