A historic day out
A mosaic of woodland with historic interest walks, come and explore Creech Wood
Located west of Waterlooville within the stunning South Downs landscape, Creech Wood is home to conifers as well as a small number of ancient broad-leaved trees. The mixture of trees provides a variety of habitats for wildlife, including patches of heather favoured by butterflies and bees, so bring your binoculars!
Discover Creech Wood's historic past as one of the few remaining areas of the medieval Forest of Bere. It was also made into a Royal Forest by the Normans, where the king could hunt within the grounds.
Forests are great spaces for your dog to enjoy, just make sure you follow the Forest Dog Code and keep the woodland clean by bagging and binning your dog's waste.
