Glasswater Wood set for extension
Thanks to funding from our partnership with Nationwide Building Society we will see this gem of a community woodland resource extended by 3.35ha by the end of 2020.
The new area is home to long established woodland which we will be protecting and buffering with the addition of new planting set to take place later this year. The new site also boasts two beautiful pocket meadows, ancient hedgerows and fruit tree, wildlife pond and a rich local rural history of the previous landowners.
Both the existing Glasswater wood and new extension will benefit from improved paths, new paths, improved car parking, seating, interpretation and way markers.
