 A large group of Club members were led around this Woodland Trust site on the 24th September by Martin Allison. Formerly ancient woodland, much of this was lost to planting for chestnut coppice and mixed conifers so it is designated as a planted ancient woodland site. The site was alive with invertebrates where the sun broke through the canopy along rides or in the recently coppiced areas. The large black and orange ichneumon wasp Heteropelma megarthrum, associated with coniferous woodland, kept just out of reach for a while but was captured for photographs eventually.
