Greenlane Wood is a wonderfully secluded woodland in a sought after location in the Dorset countryside.  

The wood itself is well mixed, offering lots of contrast. Douglas fir and hazel are dominant but hornbeam, birch, willow, oak and ash can also be found. Fern and grasses lie underfoot and wonderful foxgloves are dotted around the clearings. Bluebells and wild garlic are also in abundance in spring.

A pleasant and well equipped cabin sits in a wide open glade as you enter the woodland, perfect for family camping and woodland activities. There's also a useful storage container.

Greenland Wood is set just a short drive from the Historic town of Dorchester. Further to the south, Weymouth and Lulworth are within easy reach. More locally you can find lots of walks, The Hunters Moon pub is an easy walk away following the public footpath. 

Ward is Chalk Valleys and the County Council is Dorset.

Boundaries: The boundaries are open on all sides, to the east the woodland follows the main access track, the north and south border private woodland. The neighbouring woodland to the south is staked and marked red. The western boundary follows a small stream.
