Explore Morkery Wood
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 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.

I've just moved to the area and am really pleased that such a lovely place is nearby for dog walking. It is such a shame that some dog owners let their dogs foul right on the pathway without picking it up - maybe if there were some bins people would dispose of it. It spoils a lovely walk.

We are glad you enjoy the woods. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to provide bins in the 35 woods we look after in this area.

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.
