Located south of Marlborough, West Woods is a very beautiful former ancient woodland site.
The woodland becomes very popular in late spring due to the fantastic displays of bluebells which carpet the forest floor in certain areas.
There is a good network of walking trails including an easy access route for you to explore. Please help us protect the forest by only cycling on stone-surfaced forest roads and bridleways.

Stop by the woodland for a picnic, choose from three easy access trails for a peaceful outdoor walk or explore the trim trail play equipment, funded by the Great Western Community Forest project.
