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.

This beautiful ancient woodland is rich in native oak, lime and hazel and in spring the woodland floor is carpeted with wildflowers including bluebell, orchid and lily-of-the-valley.
