This rare and irreplaceable ancient woodland has a magical feel, with carpets of bluebell, celandine and wood anemone in the spring. It is home to the red squirrel, sparrowhawk and long-eared owl and offers terrific views overlooking Derry/Londonderry city and the River Foyle.
Prehen Wood is one of our Top Ten bluebell woods. If you’d like to visit and see a superb bluebell display, check our live map for bluebells at www.naturescalendar.org.uk as flowering times do vary around the UK. However, mid-April to early-June is usually an ideal time for most woods.
