Explore Wombwell Wood
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 4.1/5)

This ancient semi-natural broadleaf woodland provides the ideal habitat for a huge variety of wildlife species, and is the ideal spot for a great family day out with play, trails and orienteering.

Wonder through the woods on a variety of paths and pay a visit to the newly opened Upper Woodhead area.

The site is home to a rich diversity of wildlife including skylarks, meadow pipits, woodpeckers and kestrels. Carpets of Bluebells can be seen in the spring.

You can try the orienteering course or take a gentle walk along the Health Walk route and at the end the kids can play on the Natural Play area.
