    Description

    An ancient woodland covering 14 ha (also known as Adder Wood) to the north of Clipsham and near to the quarry, however it was clear-felled and planted with conifers by 1960. Formerly it was a species-rich Ash-Maple wood on calcareous clay.

    Wildlife Highlights

    Notable plants recorded include Water Avens Geum rivale and its hybrid G. x intermedium, Greater Butterfly-orchid Platanthera chlorantha and Wild Service-tree Sorbus torminalis. Some of these survived the forestry work.
