Linford Wood

Great Linford

Linford Wood is the largest and oldest of the Trust's three ancient woodlands. Despite its location close to the city centre, Linford Wood provides a tranquil haven for wildlife and people.

Look carefully as you explore the wood and you might be able to find a series of wooden sculptures peeking out of the undergrowth or looking down at you from trees.

Deer, badgers and foxes are among the creatures you may catch sight of if you visit at a quiet time of day. Look out for the green woodpecker, greater spotted woodpecker, tree creeper, willow tit, willow warbler and the sparrowhawk and tawny owl.

From late June you may see many of the butterfly species attracted to the woodland's abundant plantlife. As with any ancient woodland, the flora in Linford Wood is rich and varied, meaning that there is always something new to see
