This little wood is a gift to the people of Stotfold from their Town Council, planted in 1994 to mark the inauguration of the parish council one hundred years before.
The Town Council donated the land and bought young trees, all native British species typical of this locality, The Ivel and Ouse project team designed the layout. Many people , including children, from local and organisations planted it, Teasel, Stotfold's own conservation group supervised its creation and now carefully maintains it as a haven for our town's citizens and visitors. Snowdrops, aconites and bluebells have been introduced, enhancing the scene in spring and early summer.
There are paths through the wood. One leads from the gate to a bench in the centre. Another meanders all the way round near the wood's edge, allowing you to catch a glimpse of surrounding fields, the nearby river and distant buildings.
The wood is a delightful place. Please help us to keep it that way so that all may enjoy it.
