Jaguar Lount Wood is a new great community woodland planted in 2001 and 2004 that can be enjoyed by all.
Jaguar Lount Wood forms a link between Bignall's Wood and Alastair's Wood via a permissive path along the old railway line past the privately owned Lount Wood. A site leaflet containing a map of the site is available to download as a pdf.
A surfaced trail runs through the woodland, this is generally flat and accessible for all. Informal grassy trails also run through the site, dependant upon the time of year the informal trails may be muddy and uneven.
The surfaced trail linking Bignalls Wood to Alistair's Wood runs directly through Jaguar Lount Wood. This is an all ability, easy trail with no technical trail features. Suitable for both MTB and road bikes.
There is a large picnic area at the entrance to Bignall's Wood. No official picnic areas exist elsewhere but visitors are welcome to picnic at any point within the grounds, please ensure all litter is taken away.
Visitor centre and parking
A garden centre with cafe, toilets and parking can be found next to the entrance to Bignall's Wood.
More site information
Much of the 72 hectare woodland has been planted with walnut tree species thanks to sponsorship from Jaguar Cars. The walnut plantations are part of an internationally important research project to study the growth of the European and American walnut species which is being carried out in conjunction with The Northmoor Trust and East Malling Research. The rest of the woodland is made up of native broadleaf trees such as oak, ash, wild cherry and lime with small areas of pine and larch.

Excellent riding area if a little muddy at times and a bit overgrown.
