Maps Note: all maps below expand to a larger version.
This tiny remnant of the ancient woodlands survives among the housing developments on the edge of the city. The extensive ad hoc network of rough paths twist among the rocks and rich wildlife – a glimpse of what has been lost from former times. The area lacks its own parking and is too small for a full size orienteering event, but is a wonderful place to explore with a map.
The area is looked after by the Woodland Trust.
The Woodland Trust have produced an Orienteering / wildlife trail map as part of the EcoTrails initiative. A downloadable map and supporting nature information can be found on the EcoTrails website
