The link to the What's on guide takes you to a guide for 2016!! Is anything happening in 2018?

Neil, 25/Mar/2018

Hi Neil, Sorry for that it has obviously been missed. The What's On guide was produced by LCC using money from the Limewoods Partnership funding. This project has since ended. Any events that are to be run at Chambers will be listed on their events page. Currently there is nothing planned in but keep your eyes on the page for future events. Sorry again.

Lovely wood with some really nice walks. Sadly let down a little by some fellow dog walkers not clearing up after their dogs (there is absolutely no excuse for this whatsoever, I clear up after all mine easily enough, a bin is provided and there are plenty of products available on the market to carry used poop bags such as Dicky bags and Bogg bags) and a minority of dog walkers allowing their off leash dogs to run up to on leash dogs (a leashed dog is leashed for a reason and nobody should EVER allow an unleashed dog to run up uninvited). We are very fortunate to have access to this beautiful area to walk our dogs in free of charge, free toilets and free parking, fellow dog walkers please try to be considerate and responsible with your pets so we are all able to enjoy this privilege for years to come.

Are we allowed to hack on horses around the paths ?

Sophie, 8/Sep/2017

Hi Sophie you can ride at Chambers Farm Wood but you will require a Sherwood and East Midlands Horse Riding Discovery Pass which can be purchased online here Access at Chambers on horseback is restricted to the stone roads throughout the wood.

When is the best time and where is the best place to see orchids in Chambers farm wood?

Sylvia, 27/Jun/2017

Hi Sylvia, I have spoken to the forester for the area and he said try Willingham Woods. It stands out for him as a better location.

Hello, when is the best time to see the toads please.


Hayley, 2/Feb/2017

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.

I love this woods regularly walk my dog there, but I may have lost my engagement ring there ive retraced my steps but if anyone has handed it in I'd be eternally grateful I'm so upset!

Hi Angela, I will pass this on to the beat team who will be in touch if they find anything. I am glad you enjoy walking there though. Fingers crossed it turns up.
