Firestone is an attractive area of forest, notable for its wide-ranging tree species, from Oak to soaring spires of Grand Fir.

WildlifeRed squirrel

In summer you'll probably glimpse some of the many butterflies found here; amongst them White and Red Admirals, Marbled Whites, Small Tortoiseshells, Gatekeepers and Fritillaries.

Red squirrels and green woodpeckers are also a common sight in Firestone.


Firestone Copse car park is visible from the road and provides parking for approximately 40 cars.

This car park is unsuitable for coaches and large vehicles.

A lovely walk! The only gripe is there is a log of dog waste lying around which is a shame given there are dog waste bins scattered around! However we thoroughly enjoyed the visit and so did our dogs!!
