Enjoy a taste of history at Victory Wood which was planted in 2005 to mark the 200th anniversary of Britain’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar. Various features relating to the battle have been created, such as sculptures and groves representing each ship in the British fleet. There are open habitats too, along with two areas of ancient woodland, all surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which includes some of the most scenic and diverse examples of natural woodland in south-east England.
