Brandon Wood

UK»England»Warwickshire»Brandon Wood

Brandon Wood sits on the edge of Coventry and was threatened with open cast mining, so The Friends of Brandon Wood was formed to protect the Wood which is a 72ha semi natural ancient woodland. After purchasing the site they manage it for the benefit of the local community and wildlife. The Wood is habitat to dormice and dates from at least the 12th century. The group hold regular work parties and events in the Wood. Just across the road you will find Piles Coppice which has ancient lime coppice stools and cherry clones in a possible remnant of the Wildwood.
