Venue type: Outdoor

Drews Pond Wood Local Nature Reserve has loads of things to see and discover, with a network of pathways through woodland that has plenty of different trees to spot, including mighty oaks and tall pines.

There is quite a bit of history to see along the way too, such as an old graveyard and a stretch that used to be a drover's road. There is a lovely pond that is usually brimming with ducks and other wildfowl.

Interpretation boards provide information about heritage, wildlife and coppicing works. Habitats to see include meadows, coppice and woodland. 29 Ancient Woodland indicator species can be found, such as wood sorrel, Solomon's seal, and field roses. There are also plenty of birds and mammals for the kids to look out for, including bats, buzzards and badgers. You may also see a long eared owl.

A succession of flowers can be found throughout the year, such as snowdrops and bluebells in the spring and marsh buttercups and anemones later in the year.

A great place for a walk, but also for the kids to find out about woodland management as they get back to nature.
