Molly’s Wood is a ten-acre nature reserve created for the community by the late Ronnie Green, who named it after his wife Molly. The first trees were planted about 15 years ago, so the area is still young but bursting with life and full of its own magic. It is crossed by winding paths that lead you to the woodlands, meadows, a wetland and an orchard of local fruit trees.
Molly’s Wood is now looked after by a group of local volunteers whose aim is to provide a haven for both people and wildlife by managing the site, organising events and encouraging activities
Once forgotten wildlife has returned. You may hear the blackcap fluting from the undergrowth and the skylark reeling it’s song over the grassland. Butterflies abound as do native wildflowers.
