This is a young woodland with wet meadow which is situated alongside the River Box. Purchased as a 'Woods on Your Doorstep' site it is long and thin. The meadow areas are in two blocks which support important plant communities including Southern Marsh Orchids and Greater Birds foot trefoil. Access is only from Dakin Avenue in Boxford and there is a long walk to the site over difficult ground. However the bank vole and otters are known to use the adjacent river so it could be well worth a visit.
