(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

There is a mature Beech avenue on the roadside and parking just off the B1106.

The Forest was named to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V and Queen Mary. Fallow deer are common here.

The chalky soil supports a prolific flower population uncluding Wild Thyme, Bird's Foot Trefoil and numerous butterflies, such as Dingy Skipper and Brown Argus
