This lovely large ancient woodland can be traced back to at least the 13th century and perhaps even as far as the Domesday Book (1085-86) where it may have been one of the woods listed under the ownership of the Manor of Groby. There is an abundance of tree, plant, fungi and bird species, with a diverse range of habitats and archaeological features. The extensive path network which links to nearby woods and the National Forest provides a wealth of opportunities to explore for walkers of all abilities, horse riders and cyclists.
