Lower Wood

A fragment of typical ancient woodland where flora can flourish

Lower Wood is a fragment of typical ancient woodland with flourishing populations of woodland flora including bluebells, oxlips and early-purple orchids in the spring. In the summer purple drooping flowers of water avens and delicate blue speedwells line the woodland paths. Autumn or winter walks through the wood reveal different types of fungi including velvet shank with its yellow cap and velvety brown stem.

There is a work party at this site. If you are interested in getting involved please look at the work parties page for more information
