Explore Silverhill Wood
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

This picturesque woodland with its mixture of broadleaf and conifer trees, open meadows and ponds was formally two colliery sites. 

Through a process of coal washing, engineering, landscaping, fertilising and planting Silverhill Wood has been transformed into a beautiful woodland.

It also boasts the views from the highest point in Nottinghamshire, definitely worth a visit. The viewpoint is marked by an impressive miner's memorial statue.

Been round the park today and dog poo is a big issue and this me being a dog owner. Why can't people wise up to their responsibilities, pick it up and put it in a bin, it's not difficult!
