ravensroost-wood-2

Ancient Ravensroost, part of the old royal forest of Braydon has been wooded since the Ice Age. Ravensroost is coppiced as it has been for centuries. The hazel in the south of the wood is coppiced every eight years, allowing sunlight to reach the woodland floor, encouraging wildflowers, butterflies and other insects. Ravensroost Wood is approximately half a mile wide and half a mile long.
