Sellers Wood

Sellers Wood: This ancient coppiced woodland covers more than 14 hectares

The site is geologically diverse and this has contributed to the development of a diverse range of habitats and species. Oak-birch-bracken and ash-wych elm woodland types are both present, the former on acidic sandy soils at the southern end and the latter on Magnesian Limestone to the north. There has been a long history of human intervention, leading to the development of several ponds in the old clay pits and hummocky terrain, left over where limestone was previously excavated. The wetland is now a valuable habitat, especially as it is bordered by some botanically-rich grassland.
