Shutts Copse

A broadleaved woodland with ancient Hazel coppice

This small coppiced woodland was clear felled shortly after the Second World War, which explains why there is a lack of large 'standard' trees. However, this wood still displays a diverse woodland flora, with species such as wood anemone, primrose and solomon's-seal. There are woodland birds, including tawny owl, great spotted woodpecker and coal tit.
