One of the finest, ancient, semi-natural broad-leaved woodlands left in the Wye valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
This ancient woodland has a complex structure, with sessile oak as the dominant canopy tree in some places and ash in others. Carpets of bluebells with wood anemone, primrose and yellow archangel make a spectacular sight in spring. Birdlife is abundant with all three species of woodpecker appearing here. The wood is also an excellent place for mammals, including dormouse, woodmouse, yellow-necked mouse and bank vole.
