A fragment of ancient woodland on a steep slope beside the A127. It is mainly oak and hornbeam, but at the top are two huge sweet chestnut trees and it also has rowan, hazel and elm. It is surrounded on three sides by woodbanks, traditionally used to mark woodland boundaries. Bluebells, wood anemones and common cow-wheat occur throughout

Visiting
