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 bird's-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.
