Explore Sneaton Forest
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

Sneaton Forest is a true mixture of new and old. The larger part of the forest to the south is principally a conifer plantation of the 1960's while the northern area is chiefly old broadleaved woodland among steep valleys.

Main interest lies in the old woodland, Falling Foss, a spectacular waterfall after rain, The Hermitage, a huge boulder hollowed out to form a shelter in the 1700's, and Maybeck Picnic Place.

The Moors to Sea Cycle Route crosses through Sneaton Forest.
