This is one of the few woods close to Peterborough with easy access. It is a conifer plantation with such exotic trees as Giant Fir, Western Hemlock and Lawson Cypress to mention but a few. The wood is well worth a visit as there are woodland walks and the trees are of mixed ages with stands of mature trees, some deciduous and a good ground cover in places as well. Good for bird watching.
