pike lane, 18th oct 07Pages Wood is our largest site in Thames Chase and home to 100,000 trees. The wood offers 6.5km of walking and cycling paths and 2.2km of bridlepaths.

This valley of green space offers excellent views as well as a rich mosaic of habitats for wildlife.

It's a great place for children to cycle safely, and also provides a variety of walking opportunities without encountering road traffic.

If you fancy an even longer walk or ride, you can cross safely over to Harold Court Woods to the North West and Tylers Common and Tylers Wood to the North East. You can also connect to the London Loop, allowing you to roam even further afield if you have the time.

My dog gets a special treat once a week with a walk down Pages. Its a fantastic space and although shes a terrier, prone to disappearing on the scent of squirrels and rabbits, she doesnt seem to go too far from her family pack (us) here, even though I know the furry critters are there. We done to all the Woodland Rangers and thank you for mending the height barrier.

Thank you Claire - the holiday break meant it took us longer to get the barrier repaired than we would have liked. We are pleased its fixed too and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your lovely comments! Community Ranger

Why cant we get into the car park? Its holiday season and we cant get in there. Worse still, theres no alternative places to park and access the area. We cant just de-cam on thebusy road

The barrier was heavily damaged in the run up to Christmas and the timing meant it took us longer than we would have liked to get the barrier removed and repaired before we could reopen the car park. The barrier has now been repaired and made safe. Community Ranger

I was dog walking today in Pages Wood and I am under the impression that there is a designated horse path, today I spoke to a horse rider to tell them that they were not on a horse path as shown on the map when you arrive in Pages. The horse rider then told me that horse riders can use all paths in there and was not interested in me explain ing about the map

Please can you clarify this and if this is the case of designated horse paths please inform the riding stables. Thank you.

The map shows the permitted access for horses on trails running from Hall Lane and completing a loop in the centre of the site. We ask that horses stick to these sections of hard standing but can used grasses areas elsewhere.
