When to visit

Opening times

For the safety of visitors, Waresley Wood will be closed on occasional Saturdays over the winter whilst shooting takes place. The Wildlife Trust BCN does not own the shooting rights on this land but works with the shoot to ensure safe access for visitors. Gransden Wood and Brownes' Piece will remain open on shoot days.
