Morning meeting followed by lunch at local pub 

  • Venue: Tiddlesley Wood, Pershore
  • Hosts: Worcestershire Wildlife Trust

Woodland management for the benefit of Wildlife and Conservation.

The meeting will be led by Rob Allen of The Wildlife Trust.

At 10.30.a.m. we proceed from the car park. Tiddesley Wood was originally owned by the Abbots of Pershore Abbey and subsequently taken over by the Forestry Commission for commercial forestry when it was predominately conifers. The Trust bought the wood and is now returning it to a broadleaved plantation. This 76 ha. wood was once an enclosed deer park and is a semi-natural ancient woodland.

The walk is approx. 1.5 miles. Walking sticks/poles may be beneficial. The walking in places will be wet and undulating with a certain amount of ground cover (i.e. brash) at various locations.

On returning to our cars we travel approx. two miles on the B4084 (towards Worcester) to the Plough & Harrow Inn (SO 921487) which is situated on the left hand side just after Drakes Broughton. GPS WR10 2AG. The pub offers a two course carvary meal. Please advise if a vegetarian meal is required.
