Ollerton Pit Wood

UK»England»Nottinghamshire»Ollerton Pit Wood

Ollerton Pit Wood: This young woodland provides an excellent place to explore. Surfaced tracks and way-marked trails create circular routes from the car park. The walk round the pond is suitable for wheelchair users, can you spot the swans nesting on their platform For the more adventerous among us try hiking up the pit top for great views of the surrounding countryside including Sherwood Forest Country Park, Thoresby Colliery and Wellow Wood. Are your eyes keen enough to pick out Thoresby Hall from among the trees Wellow wood and Boughton Brake look amazing in the autumn too.

The site is not suitable for horse riding but feel free to cycle round.

How to get here


From Nottingham take A614 north towards Ollerton. At the roundabout with the A616 and A6075 take a right into Ollerton. At the next roundabout go left and continue on to Tesco. At the roundabout outside Tesco go straight ahead. Take the next right, just before a zebra crossing into Rufford Avenue. Carry onto the end of the road and turn right onto Newark Road. The car park is just down the road on the left, signed Ollerton Pit Woods. If you go under a railway bridge you have gone too far!
