Ape's Grove Wood is known locally as 'Bluebell Wood' and is a wonderful semi natural ancient woodland. The wood is bounded by an impressive ditch and bank which encloses a woodland stand of mainly hornbeam coppice, with occasional oak and ash standards. A spectacular carpet of bluebells still dominate in springtime along with dog's mercury and the occasional primrose. There are a number of notable veteran trees within the wood including a number of large hornbeam and ash coppice stools, a wonderful large wild service tree and an ancient field maple pollard
