Ashwellthorpe Wood

Ashwellthorpe Wood is managed as a nature reserve and provides quiet walks and the chance to see deer and various birds, as well as foxes etc. To find out more about it CLICK HERE or HERE.

Please note that Lower Wood is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and it is therefore a serious offence to remove or plant anything in the wood. This includes even leaves or flowers, with the only exception being authorised situations e.g. for research work or NWT volunteer workers who may remove coppiced wood.

Recently someone has been seen entering the wood with a bucket and trowel. Anyone seeing suspicious behaviour should please contact the Wildlife Crime Officer on 0845 456 4567

On the other hand please make use of the wood by walking there and enjoying the flora and fauna.

A Parish Walk was lead through the wood in April 2010. A report of this which includes history and wildlife information can be found on the website.

Please also see the Photo Album for the wood through the seasons.
