Walking trails

There are clearly-marked rides which will take you to most parts of the wood. In winter or after wet weather, these rides may be muddy and slippery and boots are advised at such times. You may encounter Hornets during summer. Although large and dangerous-looking, these insects have a generally quiet disposition and do not normally attack humans.

About the reserve

This reserve is a fine example of ancient woodland that runs in a steep-sided dingle. The western edge of the wood is also bounded by a steep dingle, and along the northern boundary there is a well-defined woodland bank - a strong indicator of an ancient woodland site. The wood is rich in other wildlife. A survey carried out in 1980 revealed 25 species of mollusc, with several uncommon species restricted to ancient woodlands. The most spectacular insect has to be the hornet. Among the bird species, pied flycatchers are present. Both marsh and willow tits breed here.
