I had the most wonderful afternoon on 26th Oct 16 with my 4 Grand children and daughter. So nice to be in an English woodland after living in Spain for 15 years, the smell, peacefulness, and fantastic autumn colours was out of this world. Would like to know how big the woodland is in acres?

Hi Peggy, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your recent trip to Chambers Wood. The woodland is 348 hectares in size.

Me and son - today we saw a big snake crossing way between car parks 1 and 2. It was less than 1 meter of lengh, grey dark with some dark pattern on back. Any white patches near head. 80 % sure we saw an Adder.. Son tried to make photo but snake was quite rapid.

Hi, its so good to hear you saw a snake. From your description I think it would be a Grass Snake. Adders have a definite zigzag pattern. Check out the reptile ID section on this website http://www.narrs.org.uk/survey.php it might help you decide what you saw.

I love this woods regularly walk my dog there, but I may have lost my engagement ring there ive retraced my steps but if anyone has handed it in I'd be eternally grateful I'm so upset!

Hi Angela, I will pass this on to the beat team who will be in touch if they find anything. I am glad you enjoy walking there though. Fingers crossed it turns up.
