About the reserve
This woodland is varied, with oak, ash, silver, birch, wild cherry, hawthorn and various other species of varying age. The understorey is similarly diverse with spindle, hazel, dogwood and wild privet being just some of the species found. The ground flora is not particularly rich, with dog's mercury dominant and some wood spurge, woodruff and ramsons present. Lower Wood is part of The Doward Living Landscape - click here for more information.
