Walk in the Woods

  • This location is shown only to members

  • If you go down in the woods today, you'll be in good company with New Friends in Flintshire, who are off to explore Nercwys Forest for the very first time.

    Coed Nercwys Forest is a 322 acre site of conifer woodland which provides an excellent habitat for wildlife – look out for birds such as buzzards, gold crest and coal tits. Nightjars, long eared owls and great crested newts are some of the rare inhabitants

    The woodland has many heritage features including a bronze age burial cairn, old farmsteads, mine buildings and quarry workings.

    There is also a small lake, Llyn Ochyn, and the Millennium Oak Trees which were planted by Nercwys Community.

    The area is relatively flat and there is a good road network which allows access on foot, horseback or bicycle throughout the woodland.

    Coed Nercwys is owned by Forestry Commission Wales and managed in partnership with Denbighshire Countryside Service.  .

    I had this down for 10th July, but it seems to have moved! But I can't do this new date I'm afraid.

      Hi Rachel I apologise for moving the date. I haven't had time to check out the date yet unfortunately. It will probably be repeated on many occasions in the future. Best regards Gerald

      Hello Maggie Thanks for your message. I am sorry to change the date but I have not had time to research the visit properly yet. I am sure we will be running the walk to the site on many occasions in the future. It looks spectacular. We are going to Alyn Waters instead. Regards Gerald
