About this wood
Burroughs Wood is a “wood of two halves“, both of them large sites and linked via a public right of way. The northern section is a broadleaved woodland with ancient origins, proving a draw in the spring when the woodland floor is awash with a sea of bluebells. South of this is a newly planted woodland, created in 1996 and 1997, with native broadleaf species such as silver birch with its distinctive white bark and pale green leaves, and Hawthorn whose heavily scented flowers appear in May and early June.
There are also remnant hedgerows and open meadows which are cut annually for hay - good news for increasing the range of flora and fauna of the area.
This is a well used site, particularly along the public and permissive bridleways. Getting around is easy, with gentle and undulating slopes.
