Features and attractions

  • Broadleaved woodland
  • Parking less than 500m away
  • Grassland

This native broadleaf woodland has some wonderful mature specimen trees including oak, horse chestnut, lime, ash, sycamore, alder and Norway maple. There is a large meadow area (previously a cricket pitch) along with an area of new native planting of oak and ash that is establishing well. The site is popular with local people particularly dog walkers and families.
