Woodland Acessibility

Our community woodland is accessible by bus and a 15 min walk or by car. There are defined foot paths and 5 sturdy, slip-proof bridges throughout the woodland, however, the woodland is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. Parents with prams can access the woodland and the woodland hut via the foot paths and bridges.

We have 3 outdoor gathering spaces in the woodland with wooden seats around fire pits, a wooden hut with a wood-burning stove and 2 portable, pop-up gazebos.

If you experience mobility impairment and you are coming by car, please get in touch with us on 07504438763 and we can arrange for you to park your car in front of the woodland gate. If you are coming by bus, please get in touch with us and we can arrange a lift from the bus stop to the woodland. We can also discuss adapting the activities you attend so they take place in the 1st outdoor gathering space in the woodland that is a 2 minute walk from the entrance.
