Explore Croft Wood
(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

This woodland straddles the crest of the hill between Croft Ambrey and Croft Castle, both of which belong to the National Trust.

Parts of this woodland are historic wood pasture and ancient pollarded oak, sweet chestnut and yews can be found both dead and alive. The careful management of these veteran trees is a priority of the local Forestry Commission team.

Expect restrictions on access at Croft Wood for the next few months.  We are felling a substantial area of conifers to make way for the full restoration of the historic and rare wood pasture which was once part of the 19th Century, Croft Castle Estate.

 

For more information on what wood pasture is take a look here at the map of Croft Wood.
