Sailors Grove

The largest of the woodland areas (approximately 20 ha) planted primarily in the 18th and 19th centuries and some has extended into the Rough Hills grassland. Some pre-plantation features remain, including a double-hedged trackway, ponds and some fine veteran trees. Hornbeam, ash, oak form the main canopy trees, and although some coppicing was carried out in the past, most of the area is growing to high forest, with some selective felling.

Hooks Grove

An almost circular area of semi-natural ancient woodland (4.4.ha) of ash, hazel, hornbeam and field maple with oak standards. The woodland has a long history of management as coppice with standards and has a rich ground flora, including ancient woodland indicator species. The habitats include ponds and rides among the coppice compartments.
