Shirebrook Wood on a winter morning

With its mixture of mature broadleaf woodland, newly planted trees, large open meadows and a scenic wetland valley, Shirebrook Wood offers something for everybody. 

This reclaimed colliery site provides home to a variety of wildlife including songbirds, small mammals and plenty of butterflies. On a warm summer’s day you may even be lucky enough to spot the Dingy Skipper butterfly as you explore the wood! 

Field of purple orchids in the sun

Enjoy the mixture of woodland, wetland and grassland at Oxclose Wood. Banks of orchids, the song of the skylark and the hovering kestrel are all here for you to discover.

The surfaced trails make it a lovely place to walk, reflect, be creative and simply enjoy the beauty around you.

Steep climbs are rewarded with spectacular views and you may even catch a glimpse of a buzzard.

Woman and dog looking out over field

Formerly two colliery sites, Silverhill Wood has been transformed into a beautiful woodland through a process of coal washing, engineering, landscaping, fertilising and planting. Its mixture of rich broadleaf and conifer trees, open meadows and ponds make it a woodland not to be missed! 

Why not explore the woodland on the orienteering course, speed through the trees on two wheels or stop by the dog selfie area!
