    Jaguar Lount Wood is large new woodland set within the Staunton Harold Estate. Various planting schemes have been used to create areas of different character from parkland to conifer to walnut plantation. Large areas of open ground, field ponds, streams and ditches all add variety to the habitat. Mature oaks and hedgerows remain from historical farm land usage.
