Heritage Wood

Heritage Woodland North Yorkshire


Our Heritage woodland in North Yorkshire has matured into a wonderful native wood offering quiet walks around North Yorkshire and Teesdale and undisturbed haven for wildlife. In 2006 the first batch of 900 trees were planted in what marked the beginning of the community woodland. A further 1400 saplings were planted in the second phase of planting in March 2007.

Nine species in all make up the woodland, the large trees such as oak and horse chestnut are planted towards the center of the woodland along with the smaller field maples, wild cherries, rowan and birch. Smaller tree species and shrubs have been planted around the perimeter of the wood to form ground cover for wildlife. The new woodland is easily accessible from Thorpe Farm Centre via a new bridleway. The new woodland paths have spectacular views of the farm and upper Teesdale.
