Colliery Wood is found in a very sheltered part of a designated Ancient Woodland (technically a PAWS site – Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site, meaning the oaks have been planted on land which has been under tree cover since the 1600s). Situated on free draining soils of deep brown earth with some clay, the site is nice and fertile and perfect for growing trees.

The oak, mostly of the pedunculate variety, were planted approximately 50-60 years ago and are lovely and tall with very little major branching, which is a good sign of the careful management they have received over the years. In the future, they are sure to be valued for their timber quality. Along the woodland boundaries are some fantastic old beech, hazel, ash and sycamore. Self-seeded saplings can be found throughout, just waiting for space to shoot up and join the high canopy.

Bramble and bracken are the predominate plants growing on the woodland floor which thrive in shade. Bluebells, wild garlic and red campion compete with the bramble and could be encouraged to full potential with a little management.

Animals and birds are abundant in the woodland. Badgers, deer and birds of prey are known to be in the wider woodland and likely make use of Colliery Wood to forage for food, or nest and rear their younglings.

In summary, Colliery Wood is a delightful tranquil space, surrounded on all sides by other woodland and is a lovely place to spend time, whether visiting or undertaking light management work.

If It Were Mine

The oaks need little management for a number of years but I might encourage some of the other species to flourish. Flailing or strimming of the bramble should help to encourage the wildflowers and also create nice open areas to potentially pitch a tent or sit and enjoy the woodland.

Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
