Features and attractions

  • Broadleaved woodland
  • Information on site
  • Special wildlife interest
  • Wetland

The isolation of these linked woods keeps visitor numbers low and wildlife interest high. New Covert, a favourite haunt for barn owls at twilight, links to Park Wood via a thicket of willow and alder, where willow tits are sometimes heard.
