Primrose Heath is a delightful small amenity woodland, benefiting from its own private access and featuring a broad mix of tree species and ages. It is a very peaceful woodland with excellent accessibility to much of the southeast and central England. The charming historic town of Tring is a few miles to the north.
The woodland features a number of handsome mature oaks. A couple of these, close to the secure gated entrance, have large distinctive burrs. In this spot, there is also a useful granite hardstanding. Towards the north of the woodland is an interesting topographical hollow, possibly relating to historic kiln works once common to the region.
Other tree species include sweet chestnut, wild cherry, beech and birch. There is an open feel to the woodland along with areas of dense natural regeneration to the southwest. Some very tall mature holly can be found reaching up high into the canopy.
In places, there are signs of wildlife such as an old badger set and the ample decaying deadwood support a rich insect population. This in turn supports the bird community, which includes nightingales and owls. Other woodland mammals include a number of bat and deer species.
The open nature of the woodland results in a ground vegetation which includes gorse, bramble and ferns and in some spots you will find primroses and other wildflowers.
If It Were Mine
I would continue to sustainably manage the woodland, ensuring that the younger trees grow on successfully towards maturity.
