Blean Wood, close to Canterbury, was originally listed by the SPNR as an example of woodland 'worthy of preservation'. A century on, the Blean is one of the largest remaining areas of ancient woodland in England, covering over 11 square miles. It is now under the management of a number of conservation organisations including Kent Wildlife Trust, the Woodland Trust and the RSPB.
