About Norsey Wood

Norsey Wood is a mixed coppice woodland covering an area of 65ha (165 acres) and consists of a variety of habitats because of the different underlying geology. It has a history that goes back some 4000 years and this, together with the richness of its wildlife, makes this site unique.

The Wood has been designated a Local Nature Reserve, a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Leaflets about the various aspects of the Wood can be purchased from the Information Centre, where the Interpretation Room has interactive guides on wildlife in the Wood and an overview of the history of this ancient woodland, suitable for all ages. (Please contact the Warden on 01277 624553 for information on opening times). Woodland crafts are still practised and are on show at the annual Open Day.
