What is an ancient woodland? Through these pages we hope to share with you the current happenings of this area of land in East Hampshire (now in the South Downs National Park), which has never been cultivated and has always been a wood. By managing the woodland in a sympathetic way, the wildlife, birds and flowers are prolific. We will try to record new activities, sightings of plants, animals and birds. Over time we will be able to see any fluctuations and trends. We hope you might find it of interest.
