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. It also has a fascinating history, having once been a haunt of the Vikings. A circular cycle track within the wood links to the SUSTRANS National Cycle Network, Route 64, making this a great destination for cyclists.
