Bedfordshire ancient woods

The woodlands of Bedfordshire cover 6.2% of the county.[1] Some two thirds of this (4,990ha) is broadleaved woodland, principally oak and ash.[2] A woodland Trust estimate of all ancient woodland in Bedfordshire (dating back to at least the year 1600), including woods of 0.1ha and upward suggests an area of 1468ha.[3] This list of Bedfordshire's ancient woodland shows only those woods of over 10ha, all of which have SSSI status, and cover a total of 628ha. Of the eight woods shown, five fall roughly on the line of heavily wooded sandstone that runs diagonally across the county south of Bedford.[4]

Berkshire ancient woods

Berkshire has woodland covering 18,304ha, which is 14.5% of its land area.[20] The woodlands listed below are all ancient woods of 10ha or more, and these cover some 2,403ha. A major proportion of the area is the area of woodland along the Surrey and Buckinghamshire borders. This is Windsor Great Park and Forest, and as well as the woodland area listed here, it has vast tracts of heath and parkland.[21] Also in the east of the county are woodlands on the southern end of the Chiltern Hills. The great majority of the woods listed are in West Berkshire and follow the line of the chalk hills across the county.[22]

There is only one sizeable area of Ancient Woodland within Bristol. The Avon Gorge SSSI is partly within the city boundary,[41] but the woodland is mainly in Somerset, so is covered under that county.

Cambridgeshire[edit]

The ancient woods listed here are those over 10 ha. With one exception, these are all SSSIs.[43] The woods are distributed very unevenly. Large areas of the fenland in the north-eastern side of the county have none. There are significant numbers in the south, toward Suffolk. More of the woods are found in the western half of the county, with three near Peterborough.

Cheshire ancient woods

Cheshire has some 4% of its area under woodland - around half the national average.[77] Since 1994 the Mersey Community Forest has been promoting new woodland planting within the Merseyside and Cheshire region to alleviate this deficit, and also better manage the existing woodland to secure its future.[78] Cheshire has less ancient woodland, and in smaller units than most counties. Many of the ancient woodlands survive in steep valleys or cloughs, of small extent.[79] Taylor's Rough, Wellmeadow Wood, Warburton's Wood And Well Wood are examples of clough woodland too small for inclusion in this list. Most of the ancient woodland in the county is in units smaller than 10 ha and 65% of the area is in woods smaller than 5 ha.[80] The list below is of ancient woodland larger than 10 ha.

It is estimated that 2% of Leicestershire's land area is ancient woodland, of which half has been replaced by new plantings in recent times.[94] There are over 100 woods in Leicestershire believed to be ancient.[95] The sites listed below are those over 10ha in size, and with one exception, all have SSSI status.[96] With one group of woods near Hinckley, in the south-west, the remainder fall into three broad areas. In East Leicestershire, close to the border with Rutland, are the woods near Leighfield Forest, an extensive Royal Forest which straddled the two counties.[97] North west of Leicester are the woods of Charnwood Forest. Further west are the woods of the coal measures toward the border with Derbyshire.

A Panoramic in the north-east of Bucknell Wood, part of Whittlewood Forest

The ancient woods of Northants are concentrated towards the south and west of the county, to that region bordering Bucks, Oxford and Beds. Many are managed by the Forestry Commission, although others are in private hands. They tend to occur on limestone soils in elevated country, and exhibit a diversity of habitats.

Oxfordshire[edit]

Young coppice at Out Wood, Oxfordshire

The ancient woods of Oxfordshire are concentrated in three distinct areas. In the south are woods of the Chiltern Hills. A second cluster lies to the east of Oxford. The Cotswolds woods on the western side of the county include those in the Royal Forest of Wychwood. Oxfordshire has nearly 18,000 ha of woodland in total (6.9% of its area), two-thirds of which are in woods of over 10 ha. 1,839 ha of woodland is represented in the 17 ancient woods listed below. Some 6,000 ha of woodland is split among the 3,390 woods smaller than 10 ha.[119] Many of these smaller woods may be ancient, but are not covered by this list. The list here covers woods of over 10 ha with SSSI status.[120]

Somerset[edit]

Somerset is a rural county of rolling hills such as the Blackdown Hills, Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses of land including the Somerset Levels. Many of the woodland areas have been designated as SSSIs with some being managed by the Avon Wildlife Trust or Somerset Wildlife Trust. Woodland covers seven per cent of the land area of the county.[142]
