A valuable member of the team

The cows have now left Leigh Woods and returned to their farm in Somerset for the Winter. They will be back with us in March to continue their valuable work, helping us restore more open conditions around Stokeleigh Camp.

Withdrawn. From April 2015 Luke Jerram invites visitors to Leigh Woods, to experience an unexpected encounter with a flotilla of abandoned fishing boats installed in the depths of the woodland.

Mountain biking

Enjoy our mountain bike trail

Enjoy our mountain bike trail

The Yer Tiz trail in Leigh Woods is a blue grade, engaging trail weaving its way through this protected woodland. Leigh Woods supports an exceptional number of nationally rare species of plants, insects, fungi and animals, in recognition of this, the site is a National Nature Reserve, part of the Avon Gorge Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation. It is very important to stick to the mountain bike trail and not forge your own path through the woods.
