Once the site of a busy Iron Age tribal capital, Credenhill Park Wood has also been a Roman army depot and a medieval deer park. Today, the wood is a peaceful place for a walk, to enjoy terrific views and to let all that history capture your imagination.

Credenhill Park Wood is due to close for a short period from mid-September 2018 for tree thinning work as part of an ongoing programme of ancient woodland restoration. This important work will continue to restore the ancient semi-natural woodland to its former glory, by thinning conifers planted in the 1960s that are presently shading out many important native trees and woodland plants.
