Hockham is a pleasant picnic site away from the main forest but easily accessible.
Full of history
In the eastern area of the Brecklands, drier sandy soils are replaced by clays. Here, during the last Ice Age, retreating glaciers left damp hummocks and hollows, distinctive features of the landscape which are known as pingos.
The northern part of the wood connects, through Cranberry Rough (an area of important wildlife value) into the Great Eastern Pingo Trail.
