A managed landscape
Half of the Forest is made up of coppiced woodland and the other half is wood pasture. The Forest is unique due to its continuous human management over the last 1000 years.
It is a refuge for a wealth of wildlife species, which have over time evolved and become dependent on this scarce habitat of managed coppice and wood pasture.
Our Wildlife & Badger cam
Watch the exploits of one of our resident badger families. This footage was filmed in the spring using a night vision camera. We also caught footage of deer and rabbits and the odd inquisitive human!
