This wood is one of the Woodland Trust's 'Woods on your Doorstep' projects, bought in 1999. The dominant trees are oak, ash, and field maple with smaller numbers of willow, alder and downy birch. 'Prehistoric trees' known from the fossil record to have grown here have also been planted. These include monkey puzzle, dawn redwood, tulip tree and oriental plane.


On Maltings Lane on the fringes of Kirby-le-Soken. Follow the B1034 from Walton and turn right after passing through the village centre.

Accessible at all times.
