SWT Bradfield Woods

Bradfield Woods is a working wood that has been under continuous management since 1252, supplying local needs for pinewood and hazel products.


One of Britain’s finest ancient woodlands the site is a glorious haven for wildlife. The range in soil types from acid to alkaline explains the impressive variety of plants – 370 at the last count. The revival of traditional crafts like charcoal production and hurdle making has ensured it remains a tremendous magnet for wildlife.
