Ancient Woodland

Next time you walk into the woods spend a little time looking at the magic they create.

Ancient woods are areas of woodland that have persisted since 1600 in England and Wales, and 1750 in Scotland.

They are relatively undisturbed by human development. As a result, they are unique and complex communities of plants, fungi, insects and other microorganisms.

How do I know if I’m exploring an ancient woodland? Look out for indicator species these include the commonly know bluebells, primroses and wood anemones or the less commonly known scaly male fern or hazel gloves fungus.
