Lady Park Wood and the Wye Valley

Lady Park Wood – unmanaged, ancient woodland.

There’s something magical about waking up in an ancient woodland in early May. With Roe Deer grazing in the field next door, the occasional grunt of a wild Boar, and a dawn chorus to die for camping in The Forest of Dean is a reminder of just how sterile and dull living in a city can be.
