    mountain biker on downhill route

    Following a recent tree safety assessment at Aston Hill Bike Park, which has identified a large number of ash trees with Chalara ash dieback, we have made the decision to temporarily close the bike park until tree felling works have been completed to remove the worst affected trees. 

    Forest floor full of bluebells at West Woods

    Set in the Chiltern Hills with amazing views over the surrounding countryside, a walk around this rich woodland reveals a great mix of habitats and plenty of paths to explore. There are grassy areas suitable for picnics and perfect for dogs to play. Bluebells which can be seen in May are like a blue carpet and well worth a visit.

    Butterfly on leaf

    Delve into Bernwood Forest's historic past with a walk around this rich woodland, located on the outskirts of Oxford.

    Made up of Shabbington and Waterperry Wood, Bernwood Forest was once part of The Royal Hunting Forest of Bernwood and received royal protection for over 700 years! The Bernwood Jubilee Way, part of the project to reinforce the identity of the hunting forest, runs through a section of the wood on its 61 mile journey within the Ancient Forest Boundary.

    Maulden Wood

    Set on the Greensands Ridge, Maulden Wood is a beautiful varied woodland located near Clophill. The woodland contains one of the largest and most important remnants of ancient woodland in Bedfordshire. Both the grasslands in the centre of the wood and the northern end of the wood are designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
