2.00pm – 4.15pm

Spernal Lane, Spernal, Alcester, B49 6JG

by kind permission of the Heart of England Forest

The 2,900 acre Spernal Estate has 2,000 acres of woodland creation, 550 acres of mature woodland and 350 of farmland.  Our walk, led by Heart of England Forest Head Forester Stephen Coffey, will take us through 300 acres of new native broadleaved woodland creation.  From Middle Spernal we shall go to Windmill Hill with a view down to Coughton Court and some of the wider woodland creation before we step into Windmill Hill wood to see mature oak woodland and small leaved lime coppice.  From there, we will go down to the lakes created 10 years ago before returning to Middle Spernal via the Forest School area in Wild Wood.

Upon returning to Middle Spernal at 3.45pm there will be refreshments served.  There is also an opportunity to visit the shop at Purity Brewery which is situated straight opposite our meeting point.  The shop closes at 5.00pm.

Please book your place with Jane Hampson.
