The Management Plan for this site is currently under review. All our management plans are periodically reviewed. A management plan review does not necessarily mean there will be any noticeable difference in our approach to management on site. If you wish to comment on the management plan then please do so by the deadline of 21 June 2015.

You can submit your comments either via: woodlandoperations@woodlandtrust.org.uk or by post to: The Woodland Operations Department, The Woodland Trust, Kempton Way, Grantham, NG31 6LL. Please remember to quote the name of the woodland you are commenting on in your correspondence.

Priestley Wood is one of our Top Ten bluebell woods. If you’d like to visit and see a superb bluebell display, check our live map for bluebells at www.naturescalendar.org.uk as flowering times do vary around the UK.  However, mid-April to early-June is usually an ideal time for most woods.
