All 5 native species of owl have been spotted on the site.There are 2 waymarked routes and an orienteering course to help you find your way around the site or just wander along the many mown rides.The wood also has the countries first permanent Dog activity course with hurdles, tunnels and balance logs!There is a small car park just off Long-Newton Lane.Horse riding is by permit only.The dog activity trail starts from the main carpark on Long Newton Lane.

Really great. No need for keeping your dog on a lead
11 months agoPlease be aware if walking your dogs in this area, please keep your eye on your dogs at all times and do not let them wander where they cannot be seen as there has been an incident of poisoned meat being left under bushes which has caused a fatality. This is very upsetting and I personally cannot understand how anyone can do this. Please stay alert to your dogs activity and report anything suspicious.
