Yoxwood Woodland Project

moth night 1a

The Yoxwood project has been running for a few years now. Many trees have been planted and are now growing from saplings to trees. The field is located off The Lane on the right hand-side just past the allotments. It can also be accessed  via the cemetery. It is open to the public all the time. There are benches and a picnic bench. Dogs are allowed on site but should be kept on leads. If you haven’t been before why not take a look?
