My daughter would like to bring some friends to Wendover woods in February for her birthday to have a ramble in the woods and to have a bbq. How do I go about booking a BBQ area?

Hello, Do you have a Gruffalo sculpture at Wendover woods?
Forestry Commission Response
Yes, we do have a Gruffalo Sculpture. It's on our view point, at the end of the Hilltop Trail, not far from the Cafe.

I have just found out about the Forestry Comission that there will no longer be free parking for the disabled from 1st December. I am disabled and have been using the woods for many years. I think it is disgusting that you are doing this to disabled people the wood's are packed on a regular basis with paying customers why do this to the people who need this. My dog gets to have a long run here but I can sit regularly and rest this is exercise for me that is needed. THis is just money grabbing as I know there is plenty going on there that you get money for. As I can't work and earn like normal paying customer how do you expect us to afford parking charges.
