Cocksherd Bluebell Wood
A charming local nature reserve supporting a wide variety of flora and fauna and known locally as Bluebell Wood. An interesting geological feature is the large impressive hollow said to have been gouged out of the terrain by a glacier in the last ice age, a whopping 15,000 years ago!
English bluebells are the star attraction in April, be sure to take a camera. Key plant species to be found here are field maple, hazel, hawthorn, birch, beech, ash, honeysuckle, wild cherry, holly, blackthorn, oak and of course the bluebells!
Although there are no playgrounds or manmade features there is still plenty of fun to be had here including searching for mini beasts, bird watching and foraging dropped leaves, petals and other materials for making a picture with later. A popular local walking route for families is around the Britwell Salome via the Beech Woods and Chilterns Slopes above it, you can find details of the walking route here: http://www.theredlionbritwellsalome.co.uk/local-walks/
