A delightful wood with a decidedly majestic feel due to the grandeur of its mature oaks and beautiful hornbeam. Steeped in history, the woodland sits next to the historic Roman road Ermine Street and also hosts a medieval moated enclosure. Visit in summer and be greeted by the heady scent of honeysuckle which festoons many of the trees - a draw for white admiral butterflies.
