Fine ancient woodland, carpeted with oxlips, bluebells and violets in the spring
Waresley and Gransden Woods are adjoining ancient oak-ash woods, home to many breeding birds. An abundance of wildflowers attracts many insects and over 500 species of moth and butterfly have been recorded here. There are many open grassy areas and in spring the ground is carpeted with bluebells, violets and oxlips.
This site is part of the West Cambridgeshire Hundreds Living Landscape Scheme.
