The Thicket

The Thicket is an area of precious ancient woodland and tracks, owned and managed by the National Trust.  

Little grassland pockets through the woods have allowed Common Spotted Orchids and other wildflowers to flourish, bringing flecks of bright colour to the glades. In warmer weather, butterflies flit through the dappled light in the bramble on the woodland edge. Amongst the younger woods are dotted many ancient and veteran trees, some up to 400 years old, where you may see fungi, insects and birds.
