A large maturing beech wood with some areas of mature conifer and a stunning bluebell display in the spring.
There is a small car park located on Northington Lane, which is on the south side of the wood. From Junction 9 on M3, travel north on A33, turn right on to Northington Lane. The Car Park is half a mile down the lane on left hand side.
We have identified a problem with google maps, which shows the car park as being located on Chillandham Lane. Chillandham Lane runs along the edge of the wood from north to south. However the car park is actually on Northington Lane, which runs along the edge of the wood from east to west. You will need to be on Northington Lane to find / use the car park.
Postcode SO24 9UB will get you on to Chillandham Lane but please note this postcode is for a private property further along and on the opposite side of the lane to the car park.
There is a surfaced trail that goes from the car park into the wood. Please note that stout footwear is required in wet conditions.
