Hi Hayley, I would suggest Spring is a good time to see them when they come out of their dormant winter period and head towards ponds to mate. Check out for more information.

I had the most wonderful afternoon on 26th Oct 16 with my 4 Grand children and daughter. So nice to be in an English woodland after living in Spain for 15 years, the smell, peacefulness, and fantastic autumn colours was out of this world. Would like to know how big the woodland is in acres?

Peggy Dann, 27/Oct/2016

Hi Peggy, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your recent trip to Chambers Wood. The woodland is 348 hectares in size.

Me and son - today we saw a big snake crossing way between car parks 1 and 2. It was less than 1 meter of lengh, grey dark with some dark pattern on back. Any white patches near head. 80 % sure we saw an Adder.. Son tried to make photo but snake was quite rapid.

Hi, its so good to hear you saw a snake. From your description I think it would be a Grass Snake. Adders have a definite zigzag pattern. Check out the reptile ID section on this website it might help you decide what you saw.
