Olivers Wood

UK»England»Shropshire»Olivers Wood

Olivers Wood was planted in 1995 with a mixture of native broadleaved tree sand shrubs, and forms part of the Woodland Trusts, Woods on Your Doorstep, project.

The Wood lies just south of the village of Chirk Bank. The site is reasonably flat and surrounded by a mixture of pasture and arable land, separated by a tall thick hedge for most of its boundary length. The site is a popular place for local people to walk and a public footpath runs through the site entering the wood at the main management entrance and squeeze post point in the north east corner, leaving the site over a stile in the south west corner. There is a circular ride around the site which links into the public footpath, taking visitors past the pond and a seat which overlooks this feature in the northwest corner of the site.

Chirk Bank is signposted off the A5. The wood is accessed from a narrow track off the main road through the village, which is outside of Woodland Trust ownership. This is narrow and not surfaced for half its length and parking is therefore very difficult. Access is easiest on foot either along this track or across the neighbouring fields using the public footpath network which circumnavigates the south of the village of Chirk Bank.
