Abbots Wood

UK»England»Sussex»Abbots Wood

Abbots Wood: A mixture of tree species can be found, each with a different use. Recent conifer plantations are harvested for timber needed in paper and chip board manufacture. Whilst coppicing Hazel and Hornbeam for firewood enables rarer species like Dormice and Pearl Bordered Fritillaries to live in the wood.

Surrounding the car park are facilities including an adventure play area, barbecues and a picnic site leading to forest walks. There is also a large grass area for ball games. Visitors are reminded to pay and display and to observe the changing car park locking times throughout the year. And at the lake you can pass the time away with some fishing.
