Archers Wood

UK»England»Cambridgeshire»Archers Wood

Archers Wood is one of a cluster of ancient woodlands in this part of Cambridgeshire and was managed as coppice with standards until the beginning of the 20th century. There are extensive earthworks from a 14th century abbey underneath compartment 2, with the rest of the earth works in the adjacent field, however they were flattened in the early 1980's. Since being in Trust ownership small areas of the wood have been re coppiced but a large Muntjac deer population in the wood has caused concern as their browsing activity has affected tree regeneration and ground flora make up. As with all these sites please observe the Country Code.
