As a result of the construction of our new Play Trail, The Highway Rat Activity Trail at Wendover Woods is now closed.
Wendover Woods will be closed on the 15th and 21st November 2018. This is to allow contractors to complete essential works.

Wendover Woods

Come and explore Wendover Woods. If you're feeling energetic, try Go-Ape! Tree Top Adventure, orienteering, or our fitness trail assault course. 

For a more leisurely time, take a stroll on one of our walks or there are also plenty of spots to admire the view or enjoy a picnic.

The Forest Centre is now undergoing a £4.5million re-development. This will include a brand new car park increasing capacity to over 500 spaces and the installation of a new exit road which will help remove car traffic from the main visitor area.

There will also be a brand new café developed in an idyllic setting overlooking the Chilterns, increasing the space available for visitors to enjoy a drink and something to eat whilst taking in the fabulous views.

A new information point will also be developed as part of the project to provide visitors with help from the team of Rangers at Wendover Woods. 

Our new play trail is now under construction and the new play equipment will start to be installed from the 12th November. We hope to have it open for the New Year!
