UK»England»Essex»Weeleyhall Wood

Weeleyhall Wood: One of the finest surviving woods in Tendring, it consists of 78 acres although it suffered severely in the 1987 storm. Standard oaks provide most of the timber but there are about eight acres of sweet chestnut coppice, a similar area of Scots and Corsican pine plantation, an area of hazel coppice, and alder glades with an important ground flora that includes moschatel.

In spring the bluebells, which carpet almost half the wood, yellow archangel and white climbing fumitory make a fine display. Several fern species are also to be found.
