Explore Morkery Wood
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 4.4/5)

Morkery is a small peaceful ancient woodland which was used as ammunition and bomb store during the second world war (RAF South Witham). The network of hard tracks provides good all year round access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. A small car park and picnic area is provided.

A lovely place to walk but not being familiar with the area we got a bit lost. It would really help if there was something to guide your walk or even a map showing the layout of the paths.

Have walked these woods for 30 years. Just wondering why more felling. Are more trees to be planted? Or will spaces be left to naturlise ?

Great, accessible walking on gravel paths plus well sheltered on rainy windy days. Plenty of wildlife to hear and see, and we have recently seen a lot of deer. Excellent for off lead dog walking.
