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 Wood is now closed from Monday 19th November 2018 for 12 weeks, including the Public Rights of Way. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Tree thinning work is part of an on-going 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.

We will update the website and site signage regularly, and let you know as soon as possible when the wood is open to the public.
