Thank you. The site is changing over time due to improvements and we will produce a new map at the end of the works, in November. Please feel free to call at the information point for any advice or direction. I am sorry you didn't feel you could explore.

I love Wendover Woods but got lost for quite a while due to the poor and unclear signs displayed. This should be one of your priorities as is really easy to get lost if you are unfamiliar with all the walks.

Thank you for the feedback. The site is under improvement and when complete all waymarked paths will start from a central point. Our signage is reduced the further one moves away from the Core area. This is to encourage self-reliance in an outdoor environment and to enhance the sense of adventure. We recommend that anyone venturing further into the forest off the marked trails should have at least a map with them.
