Copperas Wood: An ancient 34.3 acre wood mainly consists mainly of coppiced sweet chestnut and hornbeam.

After the Trust bought the wood in 1980 coppicing was re-introduced, and this has produced carpets of bluebell, yellow archangel and red campion. Among other flowering plants are moschatel, white climbing fumitory, and a few sweet woodruff and vervain. The wood is rich in ferns, soft shield-fern being particularly well represented.
