Creech Wood

Creech Wood

Our Local Wood

A wood of mostly conifer with some areas of old broadleaves. Different age structures of trees provide different habitats for wildlife, including patches of heather. Wide grassy rides provide a network of walks for those people who know these woods. With no waymarked walks provided, new users are advised to take care not to get lost. For further information, please visit the Forestry Commission website.

Members of our Parish Council meet the local Forestry Commission Beat Ranger regularly, under the Chairmanship of our County Councillor, to keep up to date with what’s being planned in Creech Woods.

At the Furzeley road end of the Woods, the Parish Council, working with the Forestry Commission, established a Jubilee Avenue of 60 Lime Trees in 2012 to celebrate the 60th year of the Queen’s reign. Each tree was paid for by people in the village often to commemorate a family event. Many people planted their trees themselves on a cold and wet November Saturday! Take a look for yourselves.
