About this wood
Reffley Wood is gradually returning to its ancient roots. At present dominated by Scots and Corsican pine and Douglas fir, a restoration programme will re-establish broadleaved woodland, remnants of which can still be found, including a hazel and hawthorn understorey. In the northeast corner is a row of veteran oaks, which once marked the parish boundary, and red oaks can be seen at the entrance.
Many flowers associated with ancient woodland thrive along the wide rides, including bluebells, primrose and wild garlic.
Generally a flat site, some paths stay dry throughout the year while others can become particularly wet in winter. Bear in mind that sections of the wood may be closed for management work at certain times.
