Corry Wood is a spacious, semi-mature woodland situated within the East Devon Area of Natural Beauty. The woodland has a lot of interesting characteristics, although there are numerous glades and open spaces the old quarry or chalk pit remains and when viewed from the footpath along the southern boundary or at various other high points, gives the woodland a feeling of enormous scale.

There are some impressive beech along the wood bank on the west and east side of the wood. Douglas fir is dominant throughout but also Scots pine, larch and some mature oak can be found on the southern boundary.

Fields lie to the south allowing lots of light into the woodland throughout the day making it an ideal wood for camping and family activities.

Perched on the top of Shute Hill, the woodland can be accessed from either the small village of Shute to the west or the larger Kilmington to the east which has two good pubs and a shop. The track from Shute is slightly steeper and longer, although the views to the west make up for the extra work. An off road vehicle is needed on either route but you can also park at the base of the hill and walk up, as shown on the map. Both Shute and Kilmington are just off the A35 and a short drive from the coast.

Ward is Newbridges and the County Council is East Devon

Boundaries are marked in blue along the woodland track to the north and west. Fields border the southern boundary and a bank of huge beech marks the east.

Access There is good access via a hard track (marked in blue on the map) leading directly to the wood. Access is possible all year round with an off road vehicle.
