Oakwood Pasture: The reserve comprises 16 acres of wood pasture and 7 acres of plantation woodland.

The habitat at Oakwood is known as wood pasture - a small remnant of the former Yoxall Park.


Oakwood is most popular for its wonderful assemblage of ancient trees - particularly oak, holly and crab apple. Look out for the oldest oaks which are thought to be approximately 500 years old! Even many of the apple and holly trees are real veterans at over 150 years old. Some of the other common tree species you'll encounter include birch, ash, sweet chestnut and hawthorn.
