Sun shining through trees with bracken and grass covered in dew

Planted in 2002, this community woodland is the perfect spot for a family walk, a burst of exercise and even a picnic.

Seale Wood will become a working coppice woodland, with a goal to encourage the development of a local timber industry.

In the heart of the National Forest, Hicks Lodge is a former coal mining site that has been totally transformed by new plantings and exciting trails for you to enjoy.

Bluebells under young trees

Located on the outskirts of Derby, Robin Wood offers a range of open paths suitable for walkers and cyclists.

The woodland offers a beautiful display of bluebells in the spring and woodpeckers and deer can also be spotted!

Planted in 2007, Poppy Wood forms the northern gateway to The National Forest, the Midland's most famous forest. This newly planted woodland houses a mosaic of ash, oak, hazel and hawthorn trees, to name a few. See if you can spot something different on each visit! 

Surfaced and grassy trails guide you through the dog friendly woodland which also includes picnic benches for you to make good use of the fantastic views across the surrounding countryside.
