About the reserve
Formerly an ancient woodland site, the ancient origins of Wyevale Wood can be seen by the fine wood bank and ditch still clearly visible along the north boundary, while the gnarled bases of some of the trees indicate former management as coppice. Well grown oaks dominate the north eastern part of the reserve. To the south, there is an open pasture area that was extensively planted up in 2001 with more native tree species.
