The Woodlands


Snowdrops in the Gallery Wood                        Grass Bridge

Ancient Apple Tree                                          Marl Pit Pond

A woodland walk follows the stream though modern tree planting and old woods and skirts two large ponds, one created in ancient times by the extraction of marl, a special clay. Along the way are many species of wild flora and fauna encouraged by careful and award winning habitat management. It winds back past new specialist tree planting and crosses the red bridge over the bog garden.

The sign posted nature trail information sheet, is updated every month and available and suitable for all ages. Guided nature walks are also available by appointment.
