Selected Wild Place / Other Wild Places / Public Rights of Way / VC55 boundary
Private but with public rights of way.
Total species seen at this site:
This wood lies to the north-west of Bagworth village. The 26ha wood was a National Forest Company Tender Scheme winner in 2000. The woodland is predominantly a commercial poplar crop with woody shrubs to add diversity and wildlife habitat. A large area of wetland has been retained. Groups of native Black Poplar have been planted in the wetter areas by the pond.
A permissive riding route has been created around the perimeter of part of the site and a new dedicated footpath links existing Rights of Way across the site to those to the west.
