Ancient in origin, historically Lady's Wood was managed as traditional coppice although many trees were felled in 1951. Some trees were left lying in the wood and now provide a marvellous habitat for insects and fungi.
During April into May the wood becomes resplendent with the display of bluebells. Lesser celandine, greater stitchwort and dog's mercury will also be seen.
Many birds have been recorded at Lady's Wood, including the tawny owl and three species of woodpecker - green, lesser spotted and great spotted.
