Woodland Trust Centenary Wood

NewsPosted by Hugh Craddock 18 Mar, 2014 22:22:05

The Woodland Trust has announced its intention to acquire 250 hectares of farmland at Langley Vale Farm to form one of four Centenary Woods to mark the anniversary of the start of the First World War. Over 200,000 trees are planned to be planted on the site over the next five years, and the embryonic woodland estate is likely to attract increasing numbers of visitors. An artistic impression of the estate can be seen here.

Plans for access (including paths for horseriders), planting and managing visitors are likely to be among the challenges raised at a public meeting hosted by the Woodland Trust at 1400 on Sunday 23 March, at Langley Vale Village Hall.
