Britain's greatest concentration of woodlands dominated by small leaved lime occurs in the woodlands around Bardney in Lincolnshire, more than half of which make up Bardney Limewoods National Nature Reserve covering 9 separate woodlands. These sites have been high forest or managed as coppice since at least the 11th century. They overlie a variety of soil types, giving rise to varied ground flora and different tree and shrub communities.
