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 car park will be closed from Monday 5th November 2018 for 12 weeks. Public rights of way will remain open for the time-being, but some paths will be closed for various periods. 

Please follow any signage / diversions on site. We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Tree thinning work is part of an on-going program 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.
