Priory Wood, Burwell, Cambridgeshire

Priory Wood is an 8.97 hectare broadleaf plantation, planted in November 1998 using locally native broadleaf tree species. Oak, ash, silver birch and field maple make up 80% of the trees with willow, alder, Bird cherry and woody shrubs being the remainder. However there are over 80 apple trees included.

More detail is available in the Woodland Trust's management plan.

The wood has many paths - some planned (and maintained), some as cleared ways beneath electricity cables and some evolving from deer tracks. There are five ways into the wood - most are difficult of access to the disabled.
