Lady's Wood

An ancient woodland filled with beautiful plants, insects and birds

Ancient in origin, historically Lady's Wood was managed as traditional coppice al though many trees were felled in 1951. Some trees were left lying in the wood and now provide a marvellous habitat for insects and fungi.

During April the wood becomes resplendent with the display of bluebells. Lesser celandine, greater stitchwort and dog's mercury are also on display.

Many birds have been recorded at Lady's Wood, including tawny owl and three species of woodpecker - green, lesser spotted and great spotted.
