Know before you go
Most of this reserve lies on a very steep broken slope running down to a cliff face with a sheer drop of 20-30 metres. There is no access path and movement around the wood is difficult. Tough walking boots/shoes are definitely advised, and it would be prudent to avoid the vicinity of the cliff-top.

About the reserve
Access to this reserve is restricted and by permit only. Please contact the Reserves Team on 01432 356872. The majority of this reserve consists of ancient semi-natural woodland with some beech, oak, ash and cherry. There is a thin understorey, mainly of yew, holly, hazel and bramble. There is little ground flora other than bluebells. With pockets of deep leaf litter and much dead and dying timber present, this wood is a good site for fungi in autumn.
