UK»England»Essex»Brookes Reserve

Brookes Reserve: his nature reserve comprises over 40 acres of ancient woodland and some 18 acres of former arable fields, part of which has been planted up with native trees. The woods are known locally as Brooks's Woods.

Most of the wood is ash and hazel coppice. Areas of small-leaved lime and hornbeam add variety, and there are also more than 20 wild service trees. A network of historic green lanes, one a bridleway, crosses the woods. Thirteen ponds and the wet surface are evidence of the chalky boulder clay soil.
