There is no car park for this site. The woodland can be accessed from near the Shinfield Players Theatre on Whitley Wood Lane.

A kissing gate is located at the end of the paved driveway in front of you.
The ancient woodland is home to a number of wildflowers including carpets of Bluebells in the spring, Primroses, Dog’s Mercury and Wood Anemones.
