A gift from an anonymous donor, the Fordham Hall Estate is eastern England’s largest woodland creation site. Around a quarter of a million trees have been planted alongside the meandering River Colne on what was once arable farmland. Alongside young woodland there are also flower-rich meadows, which are awash with colour during the summer months.
