This attractive 59 hectare woodland is a popular walking spot for many local people. The Clanger & Picket Woods are designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the varied plants and wildlife it supports with plant species including an excellent spring display of native bluebells. The surrounding landscape is characterised by farmland and the wood is home to a wide variety of wildlife including butterflies, bats and birds such as buzzards and woodpeckers.

PLEASE NOTE: Scheduled maintenance work will begin from 20 August, included trackside thinning and ditch works, which will close some of the wood areas. Most of the wood and car park will be open during this time.

Major track works will begin on 3 September and continue until late November. During this time the WOOD AND CAR PARK WILL BE CLOSED.
