Tattershall Carrs is one of the last remaining remnants of ancient wet alder-dominated woodland that once ringed the margins of the Fens. It also boasts a fascinating history - the wood was once part of RAF Woodhall Spa during the Second World War and was home to the famous 617 'Dambusters' squadron.
