Lower Wood Weston Colville: Lower Wood offers a fairly long walk among its 22 acres fragment of typical ancient woodland. Pigs still grazed here in the 1960s and evidence of the woods long history can still be seen especially in the pollarded oaks which grow on the wood bank. There introduction of traditional coppicing for woodland products has recreated the appearance of the wood as it was in centuries past. The springtime and summer brings vibrant colour to the wood and fungii is in much evidence in the autumn.
