Old blends nicely with new at Swan Wood and its appropriately named smaller recently planted neighbour Cygnet Wood. Swan Wood is an ancient site with both a distinctive and delightful character. Look out for the restored old pond home to all three species of newts. Dormice badgers and bats are also residents of the site. Children of all ages particularly enjoy the bamboo grove that has established itself in the southern part of the site and has through time and the pressure of trampling developed into something of a fun maze.
