Towerhouse Wood is a beautiful woodland of old oak pollards and large coppice stools of ash sweet chestnut hazel and small-leaved lime. The shrub layer includes hazel hawthorn spurge laurel and spindle. Bluebells wood anemone and early purple orchids grow on the woodland floor and there are abundant ferns and mosses in the damper parts of the wood. A stream flows through the wood into an unusual pond with gas continually bubbling through the water. A secret stone sculpture trail of woodland animals and animal footprints can be found along the network of woodland paths.
