Explore Morkery Wood
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 4.5/5)

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 walk and the hard surfaces are a bonus when other regular walks are waterlogged. A quiet walk, large enough to tire the dog, and owner, but easy going for all. Could do with some signage (need to keep your bearings) and some doggie waste bins, but that's a minor thing.

Glad you enjoyed the walk. We do not provbide signage or dog bins as we do not have the resources.

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.
