Wild Daffodil

An Ancient Woodland Site of 506 hectares (1214 acres) approximately half of this area is conifer, mainly Norway Spruce and Douglas Fir.

The remainder of the wood comprises broad-leaved trees, largely Oak and Beech.

The woods are noted for their show of spring flowers, in particular the Wild Daffodils.

The whole area is home to a variety of plants and animals, both common and rare. Particularly rich in fauna and flora are the Nature reserves within the woods, namely the SSSI and ASNW (Ancient Semi-natural Woodland).

Long walk today with the dogs. Wonderful - it is a beautiful place & I have visited it many times before. I am concerned that when the Government sells it off all this will change. What incentive will there be for a new owner to have my interests at heart and maintain it with recreation in mind? I hope that such short-sightedness by our so-called representatives at Westminster does not harm such places to the communities' mutual benefit. Long may my dogs enjoy their walks there■
