Crow Wood


This small wood of around 0.35 ha is mainly of Sycamore on the steep southern slope with a few other tree species; Hawthorn, Wych Elm, Bird Cherry, Elder, Wild Cherry (Gean), Ash, Birch, Holly, Rowan, and Hazel, being mainly found on the top of the rocky knowe.  There are grassy areas, some of which are mown short at the top of the slope, while others to the east and south east of the trees are of coarse grasses which would benefit from wildflower management, and this has already begun.  There used to be a children’s play area at the top of the knowe and a path to it still exists.

The lower slopes are dominated by Bluebells in the spring while the upper levels have bramble, nettle, ground elder and an extensive cover of ivy.  Around the edges are Cow Parsley, Hogweed, White Dead-nettle, Lesser Celendine and Common Ramping-fumitory
