Heartwood Forest walk


Booking from Friday 15 April: Book here
The cost of the walk is £5 all of which goes to the Woodland Trust to fund their work.
Money is non refundable unless the walk is cancelled.

This event is an opportunity to walk in the Woodland Trust's Heartwood Forest and explore the bluebell woods; it follows a talk about Heartwood Forest by Tim Wright on 26 April.

We will meet in the car park at 10.45am for a guided walk starting at 11am. The main entrance is on the A651, 300 yards north of the last roundabout in Sandridge; there is a ½-mile single track road to the carpark. Heartwood Forest provides information about the Forest and gives access to a good Google map. The nearest postcode (for north end of Sandridge) is AL4 9DQ.

  • There are no public toilets on site.  The nearest are beside the village hall in the centre of Sandridge about 8 mins walk from the carpark. 
  • By 4 May, the ground should have dried up considerably so walking boots or decent trainers would be fine.
  • We will walk up to and around the nearest bluebell wood.  That’s about 1.3 miles return and, with stops to chat, would take about 1 hour.  Elaine will be on hand to take anyone who wants to go back to the car park.
For those who are happy to carry on further, there are two options:
  1. Visit two more ancient bluebell woods, see some of the recent coppicing work and other volunteer activities.  This is about 2.8 miles and would take 2 hours.  Christina Butterworth will stay with this group.
  2. Do the above but extend it to take in the native tree arboretum and the community orchard. This would make a combined walk of about 4.2 miles, taking about 3 hours and require a stop for a picnic lunch.  William will be with you.
