Brackfield Wood, Northern Ireland
Brackfield Wood, our First World War Centenary Wood, stretches alongside the River Faughan, just outside Derry/Londonderry. It nestles between our existing woods: Oaks Wood to the north and Killaloo Wood, an enchanting and ancient bluebell woodland, to the south.
But part of Brackfield Wood is disconnected from the neighbouring sites, and we have been given the opportunity to acquire additional land which will allow us to create a continuous wooded landscape across the valley.
This land is divided into three separate pockets on either side of the river, and acquiring all three will close the gap and increase the size of our landholding in the Faughan Valley to 64 hectares.
Will you help us finish the jigsaw?
We can't do this without your help. We need to raise £20,000 from this local appeal to help towards the purchase of the land and towards the £1m project costs to help us complete this beautiful mosaic of woods in the heart of the Faughan Valley.
Brackfield Wood is also part of our Centenary Woods project. Watch our short video to find out more about this project and Brackfield Wood.
