(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Mixed autumn woodland

West Stow offers good opportunities for quiet recreation and wildlife watching in King's Forest.

On the northern edge of the Lark Valley, the walk passes through belts of old pine and oak as well as newly planted and mature conifers.

Dale pond adds diversity to the area with its rich dragonfly life and is also a summer watering hole for many birds.

We don't have a specific site map for West Stow.

Forestry Commission Response

We have just purchased a property in Bradfield St Clare (Church Farm)with 3.3 acres of land containing 12/15 Apple trees and many other trees. Our plan is to retain and recreate by planting the ancient trees as well as a cottage garden. We need some assistance in identifying the trees that are present and would like to know if this is a service that you could provide with suggestions for new trees as well.

You need to contact your local councils tree officer who should be able to asssit you.
