Sienna Wood is a woodland of contrasts, from the mature oak, sycamore and beech trees that define the woodland, to the younger oak, rowan, hazel, holly and birch saplings that are growing very slowly under the canopy waiting for an opportunity to spring forth. To the west, there are a few steep areas where only the oaks grow and to the east, where the slope is very gentle, there is a sea of bluebells during the spring months among the widely spaced oak and sycamore.
Access to Sienna Wood is very good, along a lovely stoned track right up to the edge of the woodland, with space to park a car just to the side. Within the wood there is an old forest track that has been taken over by bracken and wild grasses that could be reinstated and would allow further vehicular access and where a space could be cleared for a small camping area with adjacent parking.
Among the various trees growing in the woodland there is a sea of different wild flowers and woodland plants, vast swathes of woodrush, (cousin to the juncus grass), bluebells in the spring (just fading at our last visit) and some bracken and wild grasses in the open areas to the south. There were signs of rabbits sheltering and foraging, as well as the occasional startled individual, and a few small badger setts can be seen on the edge of the agricultural field and woodland. All around were the sonorous calls of a variety of songbirds and birds of prey (a female buzzard was seen circling overhead during the visit and is thought to nest elsewhere in the wider woodland!).
In summary, Sienna Wood is an impressive little woodland that would delight any lover of the wilderness and is ideal for someone looking to get away from it all.
If It Were Mine
I would practice a bit of forest bathing (featured in many media articles recently), as this woodland, with its sense of solitude and sanctuary, harmony of songbirds and scenic views and setting would be an ideal retreat to bolster an individual’s health and physical wellbeing.
